Baking Tip – Flour the Pan

Now that we’re getting into the Fall season, there will be a lot of baking involved! If you rarely bake, I challenge you to make some goodies this season. Your friends, family, and coworkers will love it. They get sweets, and you get compliments. Win, win situation!

Did you ever notice that sometimes when you grease the pan, it can still be difficult to get your baked good out? It’s so annoying, and the bottom of your cake looks so ugly! Here’s a tip that I learned from a good friend.

I use a bit of oil, spread it around, and then sprinkle some flour. A little bit of flour goes a long way. It helps the baked good come off the pan easily. Give it a try!

Oil and sprinkle flourGrease the pan and sprinkle flour so your baked good comes off clean and easy! 

It works great for cakes, bunt cakes, and breads.

Have you heard about this before? What kinds of things do you do to get a clean baked pan?

Get to baking those yummy treats!

  1. Hey Jamie! I would suggest you also use parchment paper too! Trace a circle using the bottom of the pan to get the right size. Grease the bottom and sides and then put in the parchment paper, and then grease the paper and THEN flour the pan. It really ensures you’ll get your cake out safely!

    • Thanks QA! I’ve tried that a few times too. I get lazy when it comes to cutting the paper though… Hahah!

      Good tip! 🙂
