Please how do i make home made cake release,i'm tired of buttering and flouring my pans.I know i'm meant to use vegetable oil, shortening and flour but what are the measurements and do i need to heat the shortening to get it to mix properly. Thanks a lot in advance.

It is a one to one to one ratio of crisco, vegetable oil and flour. I mix the crisco and oil together until smooth and then add the flour to it and beat until no lumps. I put it into a plastic container and refrigerate it. I love it. My cakes come out of the pans so easily.

Do you still need to use parchment paper with this cake release?

I just keep it on the counter. And yes i still use waxed paper on the bottom. Parchment is way too expensive for me.

I just use the cake release and nothing else. Haven't had a cake stick yet.

so, this homemades stuff. How do you get it into the pans, usually. Spread it with your fingers? Put it in some kind of bottle or sprayer?

At my local grocery store and even wal-mart, I buy a spray that has flour in it. You find it where you find the pam stuff; like the vegetable spray. I pay about $1.25 and it lasts . I love it... never have bought cake release, but I assume its the same thing, just cheaper.

Use a pastry brush or paper towel to spread it, just like you would Crisco.

I used a cake release for the first time this past weekend and was amazed at how easily my cakes came out of the pan. They just slid out with no hesitation. I would of never known about it if it wasn't for this site. I followed this simple recipe from this site:
