You can and it works fine.

I use either PAM for Baking or the Crisco for Baking.....both have flour in them. I line pan bottoms with waxed or parchment paper, then spray the pan.....releases cleanly every time!

I have used the Bakers Joy spray with flour in it for years now. Never had a problem with one cake sticking.

So do you also line the pans with parchment??

I spray the pan with Pam, line it with waxpaper or parchment and then spray it again. Works every time, with no problems.

I have always used Bakers Joy and never line the pan.

I've used the Pam for baking as well as the Baker's Joy and it works wonderfully.

I only use butter spray, sometimes Pam sometimes generic, works great.

I always use the generic brand and then dust with flour. Works well for me and I've never lined it with parchment.

I tried with just the regular Pam and it did NOT work. If your going to try that you need to at least dust with flour too. I use Baker's Joy cause it's the cheapest in my grocery store. It's on the shelf near the Crisco Sticks and Pam cooking spray. HTH

Pam for baking smells funny to me...like fake butter. I never use it. I love Baker's Joy or Bak-lean (Spelling?)

I have always sprayed with cooking spray, not necessarily PAM, and then lined with parchment. Never ever have I had a cake stick.

Good luck!

I spray my pan with PAM, line the bottom with parchment paper, spray again with PAM (don't forget to spray the sides. I don't lline them, jsut the bottom)..then bake..works all the time. No stickiing, easy.

I use PAM for baking b/c it is cheaper than Baker's Joy. As soon as Publix comes out with a baking version, I'll prob switch (all of their other generic versions of PAM are just as good as the brand). I've NEVER had a cake stick using PAM and it's fast and easy. If I did more cakes, I might try out the homemade realease stuff, but until them, the spray is great.

I just switched from PAM to Baker's Joy. It's more expensive but it works every single time, which PAM does not, especially on the bigger cakes. Every time I use Baker's Joy I end up wondering why it took me so many years to try it.

Big vote here for the homemade cake release! No aerosol sprays for me. icon_biggrin.gif

Baker's Joy user here and not even a crumb sticks. I don't line the pan with paper or anything either. Best thing in the world. Haven't tried others with flour in them though.

I would definately use one with flour in it. I but mine at Walmart on the baking aisle.
