MIXER TIPS AND TECHNIQUES
To help determine the ideal mixing time for a recipe, observe the batter or dough
and mix only until it has the desired appearance described in your recipe, such as
"smooth and creamy".
Always add ingredients as close to the side of the bowl as possible, not directly
into the moving beater.
When adding Nuts, Raisins or Candied Fruits, follow individual recipes for guidelines
on including these ingredients. In general, solid materials should be folded in during the
last few seconds of mixing on Speed 1. The batter should be thick enough to prevent
the fruit or nuts from sinking to the bottom of the pan during baking. Sticky fruits should
be dusted with our for better distribution in the batter.
Mixtures containing large amounts of liquid ingredients should be mixed at lower
speeds to avoid splashing. Increase mixer speed only after the mixture has thickened.
