Is it safe to eat cake batter?
The batter of a cake or pie can cause a stomach ache or even get sick. That's because it contains raw egg and can contain harmful bacteria such as salmonella. Those harmful bacteria can cause a food infection. So don't taste the raw batter and wash your hands well before and after making it.
Raw batter is especially dangerous for young children, but also for pregnant women, the elderly and people with reduced immunity. They can get sick more quickly and the consequences can be more serious. Harmful bacteria die during baking. So the cake can safely eat vulnerable groups.
