Egg Separator

I am behind the times. I wish I had one of these two days ago. Has anybody used one? I am curious to know if they get the job done. I baked two cakes for Thanksgiving that required separating eggs. There are several different types available. I ordered this one. Stay tuned, I’ll let you guys know how I like it.
Or, if anyone tries it out before me. Let me know how it worked for you.

I forgot to let you guys know that I received my egg separator in the mail. And, I wish I had one years ago. I expected that all the egg would slip through the cracks, but it separated perfectly!!

Over mixing a cake!

Over mixing a cake

Most cake recipes from scratch require creaming butter and sugar. So, its important to have the butter at room temperature. It’s not likely you’ll over mix at this point, but you are looking for a light fluffy texture.
Free of lumps and the butter blended well with the sugar. When adding eggs add them one at a time. Make sure to mix in well. At this point you should still be safe from over mixing. When you start to add dry mixture, the flour with milk or buttermilk. Always alternate …If the recipe calls for 2 cups flour and 1 cup buttermilk. Then add a little flour , add a little buttermilk at least 3 times and end with the flour. Mix until most of it is blended well. Trial and error..The cake will be heavy if you over mix.

A kitchenAide would be ideal. Shop and compare below.
