Flask basics 4 of 6: DIdn't find the right contents rendered

I'm not sure why I'm receiving this message as it works on my IDE just fine. Did anyone else run into the issue?

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 %} {{ super() }} {% endblock %}

{% Block content %}
<h1>Smells Like Bakin'!</h1>
<p>Welcome to my bakery web site!</p>
{% endblock %}
templates/layout.html
<!doctype html>
<html>
<head><title>{% block title %}Smells Like Bakin'{% endblock %}</title></head>
<body>
{% Block content %}
{% endblock %}
</body>
</html>

Hi Akhter

Your missing the word Homepage in title for the index page and the word block should be in lowercase b.

{% extends 'layout.html' %}

{% Block title %} {{ super() }} {% endblock %}# you missed out Homepage and lowercase B for block
{% block title %} {{ super() }} Homepage {% endblock %}

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

Unfortunately, I still receive the same error with the homepage block in place.

{% extends 'layout.html' %}

{% block title %} {{ super() }} {% endblock %}
{% block title %} {{ super() }} Homepage {% endblock %}

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