Molli posted this on the "Lemonade Layer Cake" thread and I think it got lost on page 3:
This is something I've always wondered about too, although I'd heard it was muffins that you didn't want to overmix (I remember something about stirring them eleven times by hand???). Anybody know the right answer? LisaOriginally posted by Molli526
Ok- now I am confused. In another thread about this cake, someone posted that you can beat the heck out of a cake batter. I thought once you added the flour, you were supposed to mix until everything is blended, being careful not to overbeat.
Is there a baker in the house?
