The recipe doesn’t say when to add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients – do you just add the dry ingredients into the blender after mixing together the wet ingredients?
The dry ingredients are to be added to an electric stand mixer bowl. Then the eggs and the wet ingredients are added. If you do not have an electric stand mixer the dry ingredients would be added to a mixing bowl and use a hand mixer to blend it. I edited the wording in the post so it is more clear to read.
