I made this at 1 1/2 times the measurement quantity because a 12" size skillet is what my grandmother always cooked in, so that's the size I use. I didn't have to adjust the temperature or time and the toothpick came out clean on the first check. It turned out the right thickness and the flavor was very good. I won't be buying and doctoring any more packaged mixes after trying this. Thanks.
