I tried to post this in the recipes, but it doesn't fit in any of the categories.

I know a lot of people use cake release and baker's spray so their cakes don't stick, but a Wilton instructor of mine taught me this trick, and I think its amazing:

2 parts shortening (Crisco works fine for this, don't use your expensive stuff)
1 part flour
1 part cooking oil (Use vegetable oil or canola. EVOO is not great for cooking)

Blend ingredients together in bowl until smooth. Use paper towel to generously grease cake pans.

I have never had a cake stick since I've used this! I used "parts" as the measurement, because you can mix up as much or as little as you want. If the oil starts to separate, give it a quick stir and its as good as new!

My recipe is similar...

1 cup crisco
1 cup flour
1 cup veg. oil

I store it in one of the small empty Crisco containers...perfect size! I brush it on with a pastry brush.

I agree with the OP...this stuff is great! I haven't ever had a cake stick since switching to this. And, the fact that it's MUCH more economical isn't bad either! icon_lol.gif

I just made this recipe and love it and it is cheaper than buying.
How do you keep it? in the refrigerator?
Thanks.

Thanks for the recipe. I can't wait to try it. BTW there is a category in the recipes called "uncategorized", maybe you could add your recipe there.

so you recommend not using extra virgin olive oil for this. Why?
