Do I need to mix dry and wet ingredients separately?

Most recipes will tell you to mix your dry ingredients in one bowl and your wet ingredients in another but is that really necessary?

The thought of having extra cleaning to do when it's not super necessary makes the idea of just tossing all ingredients in one bowl appealing but, let me tell you, there's a time to get creative in the kitchen and this is NOT it.

Vegan baking is all about the chemistry so if the recipe is telling you to mix the ingredients separately, it's because those ingredients need to react to each other in a certain order.

Watch the video to see my explanation on why this matters.

So yea, you'll have one more bowl to clean by mixing your ingredients separately, but, believe it, it's worth it so your final bake comes out as you intended!
