I have a hand blender with a whisk attachment though.

Its Nigella's chocolate orange cake recipe.

She says just to stick it in the food processor and blitz it and has a bit in on how to do it all by hand. Is there a way I can use my stick blender instead of doing it all by hand because I am very lazy busy.

I sometimes make the clemetine cake using a nand blender, not as quick but doable.

get the butter really soft before you attempt this, unless your kitchen needs redecorating. an enormous bowl helps.

Oooh thanks, its basically the same as the clementine cake but with chocolate. So it works just fine? And you use the normal blender attatchment?

not the bladey one, one with thick plastic paddles if you have them (mine has thin metal ones too, those are for eggs/cream, i think).

It does make a mess though.

Oh I am confused now.

I have this:|category_root|Kitchen+and+laundry|14418476/c _2/2|cat_14418476|Small+kitchen+appliances|14418587/c_3/3|cat_14418587|Blenders+and+smoothie+makers| 14418604.htm

Mine also has a whisk attachment.

Which bit would I use?

Stupid broken food processor.

not sure if the whisk attachment would be strong enough, mine has double beaters like the old fashioned hand mixer my mum had when i was a kid.
