Mixing the Tiny and the Gigantic

Jim Leff | Oct 30, 201409:17 PM     34

I very seldom bake, as the sheer naïveté of my present situation demonstrates:

I have a pancake recipe calling for 6 cups of flour, and a few teaspoons each of baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Not thinking ahead, I dumped the small stuff in the bowl first, then plopped down the 6 cups of flour on top of it. Woops.

I have no idea how to mix this stuff efficiently. I dredged around with a spoon for a few minutes, but the futility was high. I can't imagine the small ingredients are anywhere close to well-distributed. FWIW I don't own a sifter (nor does the recipe call for sifting).

First question is how to get myself out of this mess, and second question is how not to get into it again in the future.
