Batters, Sponges, and Doughs

Batter is a mixture of flour and some liquid (usually combined with other ingredients, as sugar, salt, eggs, etc.), of consistency to pour easily, or to drop from a spoon.
Batters are termed thin or thick, according to their consistency.
Sponge is a batter to which yeast is added.
Dough differs from batter inasmuch as it is stiff enough to be handled.
