Test #1 - The Mixing Test

Combining wet & dry ingredients to produce a smooth, consistent mixture in 2 minutes and 30 seconds.

The mixing test is used for many cake making recipes. These recipes include incorporating a range of wet & dry ingredients, and once mixed together, produce a moist mixture.

The mixing test is for the following recipes: cake mixes, pancake batters, butter cakes and cheesecake.

A scraper beater is the ideal attachment for mixing recipes as it scrapes the sides & the base of the bowl as you mix, so you don’t have to stop during the mixing process, to scrape down the bowl.
