‘Folding’ isn’t the same as stirring or mixing. It is a specific method of incorporating dry into wet ingredients, for example folding in flour into eggs when making a sponge cake.
The idea is not to release or break down any air inside the mixture in order to keep the mixture light. Using a metal spoon, fold from the bottom of the mixture over the top using slow movements.
