I can't do it

I can't bake without a mess. Even with a mixer there's always a pile of batter that sticks to the whizzy thing. I do try to spatula it off and spoon it off and knife it off but it just won't come clean without the use of fingers!

There's always a drip or two or three that runs down the sides when spooning it into the tin. How should I get that off so it won't burn in the oven?

The floor gets covered with flour when I open the flour bags. I've never opened a flour bag yet that doesn't spill its contents all over.

It even sticks to the bowl and ends up around the sink. The bowl, the bowl - just won't come clean no matter how much I spoon out. I end up chasing little bits around the sides and the bottom. Oh woe is me. I hate baking - such a mess.

Mind you the the finished item is not so bad.

I didn't use my fingers to rescue the drip!


PS A very warm welcome to my new follower.


  1. Home baking is worth a bit of mess! I like your blog a lot and have been looking at many of your past posts. Hubbie and I were in your neck of the woods last week to enjoy the great Neil Diamond concert! x

  2. Me too - SO messy in the kitchen! But as you say, results are worth it. Your kitchen floor looks spotless!!

  3. I'm extremely messy! As Angela says your floor is spotless compared to how mine looks when I've been cooking!

  4. I'm the same! I work to close to the edge of the kitchen counter so I get flour on the floor too!

  5. I think that is part of the fun of baking the mess :-) It certainly looks tasty and I bet it didn't last long :-) dee x

  6. I have just started following you, and your little 'moans' about baking made me smile. You are saying out loud what a lot of us think! Xx
