Licking the bowl: Fun treat or salmonella roulette?
Having just finished baking some cupcakes with the kids, they both eagerly wanted to lick the bowl. The recipe (obviously) includes raw eggs (butter, sugar, flour, baking soda, vanilla and eggs). Of course, at the end of the prep work, the batter is tasty. I know that raw eggs have a risk of contamination, but does anyone have any firsthand stories or knowledge about this practice? Know anyone that has gotten sick?
I’ve personally never heard or seen a case, but the medical literature certainly addresses it.
