Is it safe to eat raw cake batter?

Not if the recipe calls for adding fresh eggs. Fresh eggs may be contaminated with salmonella and other food-borne pathogens, which can cause illness if the eggs are consumed in their raw state. Baking cakes and other products that contain eggs will destroy pathogenic bacteria.
