Combine dry ingredientsand fold wet into dry gently let set for ten minutes.

Mines is not an exact science I cook more by look and feel than measurments. Your batter should be fairly thick with lumps.(don't worry, it will turn out fine.If their is not enough icing, repeat instructions for extra.It will keep in the fridge for a week or freeze in a ziploc bag for a least a month.
