4. Preheat your oven to 325°F (for bread) or 400°F (for cupcakes, doughnuts, or cake) and grease your pan/tin needed with butter/baking spray. If making bread, dusting the tin with a tbsp of the mix, but otherwise do not dust.
5. Continue beating at medium speed until fluffy and light (roughly 3 minutes).
