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? 

 

Thanks!

Bakersguy

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.

Hi BakersGuy. I'm a hobby cake decorator; so I don't know if this works in theory but it works well in practice for me.

i have a humungous mixing bowl for those times when my mixer is too small. I beat the butter, sugar, eggs as usual (for a butter cake), or melt the chocolate, butter, etc (for a chocolate mudcake). Then pour it into my huge bowl and fold in the other ingredients with a wooden spoon.

Seems I'm getting a big daddy of a Kitchen Aid as a birthday present next month. Ssshhhh... it's a surprise and I know nothing about it. My small one was a present from hubby a few years ago and I think he feels a little guilty when he sees me struggling with the giant bowl and wooden spoon.
