See the article under "Features" it is 2 Tablespoons of yeast. I'd be curious to hear how this turns out.

From recipes I've read most use 1-3/4 teaspoons of yeast. Haven't found any using tablespoons.

St. Louis Sticky Gooey Cake often has a lot of yeast in it, because ~
1. it needs to be strong enough to hold up the sticky gooey
2. most bakers want to make the dough, and the cake, in one day, so a lot of yeast is used to speed up the process.

Also there are all sorts of yeast, so he could have meant 2 Tablespoons fresh yeast...

I would definitely wait to make. It has to be a mistake and thinking 2 teaspoons.
