I have a question about step 2 on the recipe "Nectarine Slump" from amanda. It says:
"In a mixer fitted with a paddle, cream the butter and the remaining 1 cup sugar. When it's nice and fluffy white, beat in the eggs, then the mascarpone and almond extract. Fold in the flour by hand." I don't have a standing mixer (I don't bake much). Would a hand mixer work ok?
