This is a silly question but I want to make sure when I am creating a baking recipe this step is correct or not. When you mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients does it matter if you put dry ingredients into the wet or vice versa? I am trying to create a beignet (like doughnuts) recipe and wondering if it matters. I read somewhere where it does but forgot which way--wet first or dry first then mix. I want them to come out nice, fluffy, and airy. Please help. Very Happy

I find that when working on a dough....it's easier to work with if the wet ingredients are added to the dry. if you're making a batter...I think the dry ingredients are gradually added to the wet. does that make sense?

All I know is that when we bake cookies my wife first put the butter in the mixing bowl followed by the eggs than the vanilla (if the recipe calls for vanilla) and than as much flour as the bowl can hold.

Have a Super Day!
