Mixing Dry Ingredients Separately

Is it really important to mix the dry ingredients together before adding them to the batter/dough?

Have you ever taken a bite of cake and tasted baking soda in one of the spoonfuls?

Adding such minimal amounts of an ingredient into the batter makes it really difficult for well-balanced distribution among the whole batter.

Mixing it with the flour makes sure that all the batter will get an equal amount of the leavening agent, spice or salt.

This is such a simple step that also has another function – fluffing up the flour and getting rid of all the lumps.
