    The ingredients list includes sugar (1 cup) but it is not mentioned in the directions. Do I add sugar to the syrup, or to the cake itself?

    I made this for my husband's birthday as he loves both ouzo and sambuca. I used sambuca and doubled it in the cake and in the sauce. It was very flavorful and moist...yummy!!! Thank you for a great recipe!
