I mix cake batter by hand, muffins the same, and cookie dough. Not that I make a lot of those items.
However, Ds gave me 2 bananas that were perfect to cook with, and I made a pudding stovetop, mashing everything by hand for a while. I think that, had I been able to put it in the food processor, that texture would have been perfect, though the flavor was very good. Plus, we need the potassium, so that worked.
