There is a good reason for these instructions on the cake mix box.
These were my mistakes in using a whisk instead of a mixer:
- I could not physically replicate the speed of a hand mixer. No one can!
- Even though the dough looked mixed, after it came out of the oven, the cake tasted like unmixed batter…it was a little off.
- Two minutes mixing with an electric mixer seems long, but it’s even longer when using a whisk. I gave up after one minute from sheer exhaustion.
- Lastly, the cake will fail ….( it will!) ….and will taste like crap. (It does!)
I had a sad cake day. 😦
