I just use butter and flour. I find it works better than spray oil and it's fairly simple.

I find that the spray ends up as a puddle in the corners of the pan. But with the cake release, it is right there always ready to use. It has never failed me. And I find it does not affect the taste of the product in any manner.

I actually have two different ones I use. Since I am requested to make the Hershey's cake the most often, I put a couple of spoonful's of cocoa in with the flour for the second jar. I use that one for the "Death" cake as my family calls it. You will be slaughtered if you try to take even just a bite of what is on one's plate. Or for any other chocolate recipe that calls for a grease and flour step.

I've been using an olive oil spray and I've had better luck with that than with just buttering the pan. But I've never tried the butter and flour mix before, so I might do that next time.

Thank you, everyone! I've gotten some really helpful tips here!

The note is at home and I'm not, so I can't check who posted it - I think I wrote that, too. I think it was Katie H that gave us that lovely trick. I suppose someone with better search skills than mine (which are one step above none-at-all) will be able to find her post - or whoever posted it - in less time than it will take us to drive home.
Like you I can't remember also who gave it to us. But I swear by it. I have the inside of my cabinet doors taped with cooking notes so I don't have to look it up or go into my hard copy file. I am running out of room on the inside of my cabinet doors.

Yoo Hoo Katie, are you the one who originally gave us this recipe?
