    Under the picture you list both white and brown sugar but in the ingredient list there is no white sugar listed….I am going to try this combination tomorrow!! Hope your trip home was OK.

    • Great catch! Yes, I used both sugars, and I updated the recipe to reflect that. Thanks for letting me know!
