  5. Toss them until fully coated.
  6. Mix the all-purpose flour and baking powder in a small bowl and set aside.

  8. Add in the eggs and beat at medium speed until combined.
  9. Add the all-purpose flour and baking powder mixture in this same bowl and beat at medium speed until fully incorporated.
