Learn Basic CSS by Building a Cafe Menu - Step 23

So I’m struggling to get the div selector to change the background colour. I’ve followed YouTube tutorials to get the code right and its worked for them but not for me. Why is it not changing the background colour?

<!-- file: index.html -->
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
    <title>Cafe Menu</title>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet"/>
        <h1>CAMPER CAFE</h1>
        <p>Est. 2020</p>
/* file: styles.css */
body {
  background-color: burlywood;

h1, h2, p {
  text-align: center;

div {
  width: 300px;
  background-colour: burlywood;

‘background-color’ is a property, 'burlywood is a ‘value’.
You have made a type. You have typed in “background-colour” instead of “background-color”.
