I've been doing this until 2006 and it came from a DiscussCooking member. Don't know who but I will NEVER be without the stuff. I have shared this recipe with a number of foodie friends who say they, too, won't be without it! Just sayin'!
MIRACLE PAN RELEASE
(Makes about 3 cups)
1 cup lard
1 cup vegetable oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
Put all ingredients into a large bowl and, using the whisk attachment of an electric mixer, beat until combined and fluffy.
Or, in a medium bowl, combine all ingredients with a hand mixer until the mixture slightly increases in volume and the mixture looks smooth and creamy.
I prefer using the whisk method because I think it produces a better consistency.
Use in place of vegetable spray, especially with baked goods.
Place in a covered container and store on counter top or in the pantry.
Use a pastry brush, clean paper towel or clean fingers to coat the inside of baking pans before baking.
I use it for anything that needs to be greased, such as a crock-pot, bread pans, etc. It’s definitely a “miracle.” Wouldn’t be without it.
Use within 3 to 4 months or store in refrigerator for longer use.
