I grease and flour my pans and my white cake is sticking terribly. All my other flavors are coming out fine. I am using Duncan Hines classic white mix. Are there any tricks to getting it to release?
Yes - instead of greasing and flouring, toss equal parts oil, shortening and flour into your mixer, blend together and put that on your pans instead - refrigerate any extra.
I learned that on here and I'm pretty sure that a real live angel came up with that recipe.
I grease the bottom of the pan, line the bottom with a piece of parchement paper, then spray the pan with "Baker's Joy". Never had a cake stick.
I second the shortening/flour/oil recipe! I just keep a container in the fridge with a pastry brush. Works like a charm! Cheap and easy cuz its all stuff you've probably got on hand.
Thanks so much. I am going to try shortening,flour, and oil right now.
You won't be disappointed!
I just baked a DH white cake last night and the SIDES literally fell off.
thank goodness the cake I made didn't require a pretty base of a cake! I thought it was the pan I used!
Haven't made that 'homemade' grease yet, but had it in my file. Now I will try it for sure!!!
I use the homemade (oil, flour, shortning) mix too, and never have any problems at all with cakes sticking. Works like a charm!
