This is one of the most important points to be learned before you start baking. If you have started baking cakes, then you must be familiar with the cakes sticking to the bottom and coming out of the tin in pieces. A very simple technique to make your cake tin non stick is by greasing, lining and dusting the tin before adding the batter. Every baker has a method which works out for them and these are the methods I use which gives 100% results. Some use oil, some apply butter and some go for store bought pan release spray. In this post I will talk about two methods, one with butter, flour and parchment while the second one is with home made pan release. If you are a regular reader, then you might be familiar with my home made pan release post. In this post I will show you how I use it practically. I have made a video for both the methods. Take a look. If you like it, then give a thumbs up for my video, subscribe to my channel and share it with friends.
I have been using this first method ever since I started baking. Yes, my mom taught me this while she taught me to bake my first cake. At that time, it felt like a great achievement when I properly grease and dust a tin. And I used to teach my students also, but some made a mistake of leaving out certain areas and I had to correct it. So I was searching for alternatives for this method, and I stumbled upon a post by I Am Baker.
I tried and have posted the recipe for the pan release earlier. Click on the name to find the recipe. This is so much easier than the first method. You just need a pastry brush to apply the pan release. Whatever method you use to grease your pan, always line the pan with a parchment or baking paper. This makes it easier to remove the cake. Trust me, even after perfectly greasing and dusting tins, I have failed to remove the cake in one single piece without lining the tin. So nowadays I never ever pour batter without lining the tin.
