Sometimes you will run across a recipe that doesn’t tell you the order to add your ingredients. I have learned through trial (barf spots in muffins) and error how to solve that issue.
Start with all your dry ingredients first including your spices and mix them in a bowl. You can not over mix dry ingredients so mix until the particles are uniformed. This you can do by hand and will take less than a minute.
Next, mix your wet ingredients together. It always helps to whip the eggs first and then add all the other wet ingredients. Again, the goal is to make it so you have an uniformed consistency.
Now with equal parts thoroughly mixed you can add them together with no fear of barf spots or anything else standing out….except your yummy creation.
