Hello Fam


Question, I am mixing a large quantity of cake batter and don't think my mixer can handle it all at one time.  Can I make half the batter and set it a side while I start on the second half of the batter?


Will it be safe for batter to sit for about 5 to 6 minutes before going into the oven?

ASometimes I have divide the batter in to two and bake one after the other. So some batter have to wait for longer. I didn't have trouble. I think you should try. Good luck.

ADon't quote me, but I have read here on this forum that people hold batter by putting it in the fridge. Though for 5-6 minutes that doesn't seem necessary. It takes me longer than that sometimes to fill cupcake tins, lol

When I have a large batch to mix I usually start baking the first batch, then prepare for the next batch, just to avoid anything happening to it while leaving it out.
