Because blitzing doesn't mean the same as blending?
To me blending refers to amalgamating several ingredients into a
smooth and different food (blend butter sugar, add eggs and blend, add
flour and blend, result, raw sponge mixture).
Blitzing refers to breaking up an ingredient into smaller particles of
itself (machine-chopping a crust (into breadcrumbs) or herbs, nuts meat.
