This recipe will change your life.
Okay, maybe it won’t change your life, but it will change your baking.
Before I learned about this recipe, preparing my pans for baking cakes felt like a chore. I was buttering and flouring my pans and then cutting out 8 or 6 inch circles of wax paper to make sure my cakes would slide out easily.
I’m not sure where I originally found this recipe. I’ve seen it on several baking blogs since I began using it, but nevertheless you will want to make this homeade cake pan release (aka GOOP), and keep it on hand if you’re a baker. It is super cheap and super easy to make.
What you will need.
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup shortening
*You can half this recipe if you don’t bake very often.
Add the flour, oil and shortening into a blender and blend into a smooth paste.
Spoon into a storage container or jar.
And that’s it! It’s that easy!
Goop can be stored in an airtight container and will last a good while. You can use this for brownies, muffins or anything else your baking up!
I use a paint brush to paint it on the cake pans before pouring in my batter.
It works great for bundt cakes too!
You’ll have no more cakes stuck in the pan with this simple to make DIY pan release!
Give it a try and let me know how you like it!
