Okay, so i know i can either grease the base as well as the sides or use parchment paper to keep the cake from sticking. I dont know if im doing something wrong but greasing the pan hasnt worked well for me, and the parchment paper ends up sticking to the cake...
whats the best way to be able to remove the cake from the pan without it breaking?
AThe parchment is supposed to stick to the cake, you just peel it off.
If you really want to stick to greasing the pan, you need to then add a light coating of flour after you grease.
my experiences with the parchment paper, it does peel, but it rips and its like stuck to the cake in areas. Am i over baking the cake or am i supposed to flower the parchment paper as well before putting the batter in? the parchment paper seems to help me more, but it rips and sticks in areas like i said. Im just trying to make the removal as clean as possible.
Have you tried silicone baking paper? It's called GladBake in Australia.
AI have finally figured out what works for me...I use parchment paper. I trace the bottom of the pan then cut the circle. I lightly spray the pan with cooking spray then stick the parchment paper to that (so it won't move around when I pour the batter in.). Once the parchment is stuck, I spray it all again...this time making sure to spray the sides of the pan and on top of the parchment paper. Then pour the batter in and bake like usual. Let the cake cool for a while after coming out of the oven. Then run a butter knife around the sides of the pan. I move the knife a little to loosen everything up. Then the cake will pop right out! You do have to peel the parchment paper off the cake, but when you do, it looks beautiful! Since I started doing it this way, I have not had any problems with cakes sticking to the pans!
Spray pan, parchment, then spray parchment. I use Baker's Joy. The parchment does stick to the cake but it's easy to peel off.
AI never grease the top of my parchment, the fat in the cake does that all by itself. I leave my cakes to cool in the pan, then leave the parchment on until the cake is stacked.
