Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients. Gently pour liquid into the well. Using a wooden spoon, go around the outside edge of the dry ingredients to gently pull the dry into the liquid. Mix like this as gently as you can, just until all the ingredients are wet, but some bits of dry remain.
