  1. Very confusing instructions. For the caramel syrup, how much sugar? The 1 cup listed further down the ingredients list? Or is that 1 cup for the egg mixture in Step 3?

    1. I'm sorry the instructions are confusing to you because of the order of the ingredients. Yes, use 1 cup of sugar to make the caramel syrup.
