Help me not ruin this cake

I am making this delicious looking blackberry buttermilk cake: http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/20...

And the recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of baking powder. Does that sound like a typo or could that be right? Quick answers requested b/c the flour and baking powder have already been measured!

    If it said a tablespoon of baking soda I'd be worried but not baking powder. Should turn out just fine.

        I was curious how this turned out! The original recipe looks delish, and I'm curious about that tablespoon (especially with the extra 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda!). I don't think I've ever seen a recipe use that much...

      Hi, I made this today and I too thought a tablespoon of baking powder seemed like a lot, but the cake turned out fantastic!!!! We liked it so much in fact, that I ran out and bought his new cookbook.
