Incorrect amounts in a CHOW recipe

In the recipe linked about, it mistakenly calls for 2 tablespoons of baking soda and baking powder instead of teaspoons, which results in a horrible mess as detailed by Nyleve at http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/688789. I did a "Search Inside" on Amazon to find the original recipe in the book credited to verify that it should have been teaspoons. CHOW clearly goofed when entering the recipe.

Curiously, CHOW also increased the quantities of all of the other ingredients from the original recipe (1 1/2 cups of flour, oats, and buttermilk to 2 cups of each, 2 eggs to 3 eggs, etc.), but didn't increase the pan size. Unless the author has posted corrections to his original recipe elsewhere, that seems like rather a liberty to make these changes yet still attribute the recipe to him -- especially if it doesn't work! CHOW could, of course, say, "Adapted from" if they want, but it certainly isn't Terence Janericco's original recipe as it currently stands.
