A question about a recipe: Rhubarb Streusel Coffee Cake

4a6cce6e cc0d 11e5 8e0d 3c15c2d2bb38  37 full

I have a question about the recipe "Rhubarb Streusel Coffee Cake" from Burnt Offerings. You specify one stick of butter-- 8 oz. One stick is usually 1/4 lb., or 4 oz. I'm guessing you meant 1 stick-- 4 oz. Right?

Wow, good question. One stick of butter is 8 tablespoons, but only four ounces. Maybe the author meant 8T.

Thanks, Sarah and Mrs. Larkin. Didn't think of the 8 T. I'm going with one stick...
