I have a question about the recipe "Blueberry Cake Donut Bars" from erinmcdowell. Why should I beat butter & sugar with a wooden spoon versus using my stand mixer?
Erin is a baking aficionado, writer, stylist, and Test Kitchen Manager at Food52. She is currently writing a cookbook.
Hi Megan, feel free to use your mixer-this is just a recipe that (for ease) can be mixed by hand. The butter/sugar don't need to be vigorously creamed like, say, for cookies. But if you love your mixer, go for it!!
erin, maybe you could add ("or in a stand mixer with paddle") to your recipe.
I used my stand mixer, and everything turned out great.

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
