This totally reminds me of a Mother's Day card I saw this year. It read "Good Mothers let their kids lick the beaters. GREAT Mothers turn the mixer off first!"
I am totally a batter taster, and always have been. As a teenager I would call my girlfriends over and make a batch of brownie batter-without eggs- and we would sit around and eat the bowl together.
Ya, I love licking the bowl too. Only time I have to force myself to remember not to is when I'm pregnant. All the good stuff you miss out when your preggers... Otherwise, I'm the same, not too worried about it with the raw eggs.
Oh and that's also probably why I love cake pops so much, it's like cake batter but its done!
The batter is the best part!
I'm a taster. I love it. It funny because everytime, I wonder how something in the world with raw eggs in it could taste so good!
Raw eggs are not as serious of a threat as they used to be.
That aside, I always licked the bowl. I had some cupcakes made the other day, and was working on another batch, when my DH grabbed a spoon, stole a scoop of cake batter, and topped one of the cupcakes with it and scarfed it down!
I offered to make him a cake the other day, and he said don't bother baking it because he just wants to eat the batter. LOL!
I love licking the bowl after every cake i make. yum. As for raw egg. i was brought up on raw egg. i had to swollow one almost every day, mum said it was good , so i did it - we never heard of salmonella at that time.
