I started to mix my cupcakes last nite so I opened the cake mix and put it in a bowl. The baby started crying and by time he got to sleep it was to late to bake so I covered the cake mix (completely dry no other ingredients added) and left it on the counter overnite. My question is should I still be able to use it? Is it ok? I don't have bugs or anything like that. What do you think?
I would use it.
i and others have held FULLY mixed up batter in the fridge overnight.
Perfectly fine -- just like leaving flour or sugar out in a canister on the counter.
Whew...thanks Doug and Poohsmomma! I don't have any more yellow mix and hubby put my van in the shop for service so I was going to be SOL! Thanks again!
My question would have been "Why COULDN'T you use that dry, unmixed mix?" There's nothing in it to spoil, you said it was covered and no chance of little crawly critters getting to it.
So why NOT?
