yakuta, the recipe I did called for stirring in the vanilla after the wet and dry guys have been put together. seems to me that I recall this instruction in other baking adventures - stir it in last, with the nuts, or choc chips, or whatever other additives you are using.
I agree that throwing it in with the other wet ingredients makes just as much sense, if not more. Just an idle question I had. thanks.
