I have to make a cake tonight for tomorrow and I can't get the cake to release from the pan in one piece. It's a 9x13 pan and it keeps sticking in the corners. icon_cry.gif I've tried cooking spray and I've tried greasing and flouring the pan and it still sticks in the corners. Can anyone help?

I take 1 cup flour 1 cup oil 1 cup shortening mix in mixer for 5 min to make my own pan release nothing sticks once you lay down a heavy coat.

Why not line it in baking paper?

Do you have parchment paper? If you do, line the pan with that. I would highly recommend buying some if you don't. I purchase it from Alison's Pantry - it come in sheets that fit perfect on a cookie sheet, but I cut it to fit cake pans icon_smile.gif The other thing you might try is to gently go around the edges with a knife before you try to take it out of the pan HTH

I have parchment paper and foil and it never occurred to me to use wither one to line the pan.

I use the homemade pan release too and have never had a problem. Mix up a batch a store it in a jar until needed. It's great! Does not need to be regfrigerated!
Good luck!

I wish I had known about this sooner! but hey thats why we have sites like CC and such great people I must add!

I love this place! and I dont think I will ever grease, flour or line another pan as long as I bake LOL!!

I NEVER bake a cake without lining the bottom with parchment paper but I still put baking spray on the sides. I never have a problem anymore.

icon_confused.gif I'm imagining the homemade pan release to be kind of like sludge........do you spread it around with a paper towel, or with you hand??? I'm curious now, thinking maybe I should try it, but need a little more info!

ToniMarie..............you can use a paper towel , but I like a pastry brush the best. This stuff beats Wiltons and much cheaper to make and lasts a long time I make a 4 C batch each time I do it, nothing to go bad in it. Well I guess the oil would get sticky but I use too much of it for that to happen. Enjoy!!!!
