Do I Have To Grease The Parchment Paper Too?

Last week I was having problem with my coconut cakes coming out broken so I started using parchment circles and strips around my pans.I was also greasing them too once I set them in but I noticed the cakes came out really greasy which stands to reason since I am greasing the parchment...

Will the strips of parchment just peel off the cake even if I don't grease them before I put the batter in???

Thanks!! thumbs_up.gif

Yep. Like how when you bake cookies they don't stick to the parchment.

Wow, Kiddiekakes, I'm glad I saw that because I always grease my parchment and then the bottoms are kinda greasy, glad to know there is no need! :]

I only use parchment paper for my pans. I ONLY use the paper for the bottom and do not use anything on the sides. I just run an offset spatula around the edges to release the cake when done.
