Do you let your kids lick the beaters?

I do. My mama throws a holy fit about it too. We licked them as kids and every single one of us for some reason she flips out about the grandkids getting them because of the raw eggs (as if they weren't in there when we were kids!)

  • Raw eggs can have samonella; it is your choice if you want to risk this with your kids. If you want a cake recipe without eggs, let me know!

  • Sure do. We lick the beaters and the bowl ;) I remember doing that at my grandma's house too every time she was baking something. None of us ever got sick from it either.
