I just realized that a coffee filter fits almost perfectly in the bottom of an 8-inch round pan. Has anyone used one to line a pan? I usually use parchment but will gladly switch to coffee filters if they work.
Welllll in my mind it might stick to the cake once turned out. Parchment or wax paper has a very different finish that allows it to be removed while warm. I'm not sure a filter would come off w/o tearing some cake along with it. Looks like another project for you or someone to try & report back for all of us :)
You can use butter stick wrappers, or wax paper if you're in a pinch, but not coffee filters, they would really stick.
I thought wax paper burned in the oven because it doesn't have a high melting point. I used it once because I didn't have parchment and started a fire in the oven lmao it wasn't funny then, but it is now.
if you cover it with cake batter you're fine -- if you try to bake cookies on it it will probably flame up --
-K8memphis, are you referring to wax paper or coffee filters?
