I messed this up totally and it still came out great, so it is really more than 5 stars! After a long busy day at work, my husband started talking to me as I was mixing the batter. I assembled everything and let it bake. Half way through the baking time, I saw on the counter the milk and the oil that I had in a measuring cup. It was too late to add it, so I just cooked as normal and the end result was delicious! Not as moist as it was supposed to be obviously, but still great flavor. I will make again soon (with All the ingredients!) Thanks Seasoned Cook!
