Don't see what's the issue here

Help, please :)

flask_app.py
from flask import Flask
from flask import render_template

app = Flask(__name__)


@app.route('/')
def index():
    return render_template('index.html')
templates/index.html
{% extends "layout.html" %}
{% block title %} Homepage {% endblock %}

<body>
{% block content %}
<h1>Smells Like Bakin'!</h1>
<p>Welcome to my bakery web site!</p>
{% endblock %}
</body>

Hi Joakim,

You shouldn't remove all the html markup from "layout.html" because it is needed in order to extend to other templates. The challenge asks you to remove it all in "index.html" because it inherits everything from "layout.html". (You should also remove the <body> tags in "index.html").

layout.html should look like this:

<!doctype html>
<html>
<head><title>{% block title %}Smells Like Bakin'{% endblock %}</title></head>
<body>
{% block content %}{% endblock %}
</body>
</html>

Hope this helps.
