Bakers Joy spray

It only costs $2.24 at Walmart and works pretty well. However, after only the 3rd use, it would only dribble out a creamy colored goo. Ah well.

I came across others who said the same and one poster posted the following recipe for "pan grease." Anyone tried this for baking deserts?

"I use a substance called Pan Grease.....I just brush it in my pans on bottom and sides and haven't had any problems with sticking or breaking...."

Pan Grease

1 cup shortening
1 cup flour
3/4 cup vegetable oil

"Blend well using a mixer and put it in airtight container. Need not be refrigerated."

For greasing a pan for baking, I brush the inside of the pan with butter and then sprinkle with flour until it is all coated. Then I shake off any flour that's loose. I imagine the pan grease would work as well. I would worry about the possible taste of the fat and I would worry about it going off.

+1. This is what I do too. I use butter rather than oil or a spray.

Ok. I'll try and find something to store the flour in that I can shake out more evenly. I may try the vegetable spray first just for convenience sake and see how that goes.

I use Pam Baking Spray that has flour in it. It works great and I don't notice any flavor from it.

The first time I made a cake in my Bundt honeycomb pan using butter and flour, it turned out fine. The second time, it stuck horribly and I had to turn it into a trifle. So I bought the Pam Baking Spray and the problem is gone.

Some of our baking pans, muffins, etc., are kinda non-stick so the spray beads up on the surface rather than coating it evenly so I reverted to butter.

I have had that recipe for the cake pans for eons. The print is almost worn off. Time to write or type it up again.

My honeycomb cake pan is non-stick, too. I figure the pressure from putting the batter in smooths out the spray. In any case, it works better for me than butter and flour.

I've been using butter and flour for close to 40 years and never had a problem with it.

I'm glad it works for you After my honey cake stuck in the pan so badly, I didn't want to risk it happening again. It probably has something to do with the intricate pattern of the pan.
