If the cake broke into a bunch of pieces, I think you should consider a rebake - unless its just for dessert or something. I use parchement circles on every single cake I make, even the 6" ones. And I spray Pam around the edges. If I even suspect it might stick, I brush crisco and then shake with flour but I don't do this every time. HTH

I always had problems with my carrot cake too sticking in pan. Someone on cc suggested I use parchment on bottom and have never had a problem again. I don't use parchment on my other cakes and never have a problem. I think it must be the carrots or something. Good luck

I second using the parchment. I had a heck of a time with carrot cake sticking, too.

lol, sometimes the carrotcake sticks to the parchment paper if I don't take it off quickly enough. My recipe is good but almost looks like a thin layer of jello on at the bottom of the cake.....I think that's the crazy glue syndrome. icon_smile.gif

I use parchement on EVERY cake... makes cleaning the pan easier too. icon_smile.gif

The ONLY way I can get my carrot cake out of the pan is to spray/grease the heck out of the sides and use parchment or wax paper on the bottom of the pan. Then after it is baked, leave it in the pan for 10 minutes, take out of pan, flip over, and very carefully peel off the wax paper

I use cake release and wax paper circles. Never had a problem with that! And, the wax paper is cheaper than parchment too.

When making a carrot cake, I always use parchment or wax circles. When they're not available, I used a ton of the non stick spray. I've never had a problem.

Cakes with a lot of added ingredients like nuts or fruit are notorious for sticking.

Next time, spray the bottom of the pans with PAM, line them with a piece of parchment or waxed paper, then spray the whole pan [you can also just grease and flour, but I prefer using PAM for Baking!].

The cakes will come out easily next time!
