I am once again participating in Works-for-Me Wednesday. My tip involves my stand mixer.
I have a Kitchenaid stand mixer. It's great, but I always had a problem when using it with cake mixes (or any dry mix). It seems no matter how many times I scraped the sides of the mixer, I always ended up with a small amount of dry mix in the bottom of the bowl.
The last time I made a cake, I got the idea to add the wet ingredients to the bowl first, rather than the dry. Ta-da! No dry mix left in the bottom of the bowl.
This may violate some sort of baking rules (I am no chef, as evidenced by the fact that I use cake mixes!), but it works for me!
Be sure to check out the rest of the great tips over at Rocks in My Dryer.
