Isn’t licking the bowl the best part of baking? It’s just a few batters–I can probably count on one hand–that don’t taste yummy. Most of the time you wish you had more left overs! 🙂
I remember all the times my mother baked when I was a child and I couldn’t wait for her to be done so I could start licking the bowl or the utensils. Anything that had touched the batter had to be enjoyed! Rinsing it away was, and still is, an obvious no-no!
