Non Stick Pan Coating Recipe


Do you still grease and flour your pans? I use to make and sell decorated cakes and I always bought a non stick pan coating that made the cakes release from the pans easily and without sticking. Then one day I couldn’t find it anymore so I went back to the old fashioned way of shortening and flour. Although that works, it is always so messy. With this recipe all you need to do is coat any pan and that’s it! I even used a pastry brush to put it on making it even less messy.

  1. My mother baked/decorated wedding cakes when I was growing up (I ate a lot of “cake-tops”, from when she leveled the cake layers). I recall she used shortening on her pans. Better than the chemical process of non-stick pans (both that which might wear off and get into the baked products, as well as in the water supply near the factories that make the stuff — a problem in parts of our state where non-stick cooking pans have been made). Old-timey ways are sometimes better… how about using lard? Now, that’s old-timey way 🍰 – Oscar

  2. I don’t make much in the way of sweet things, so I usually use butter and cornmeal to “grease” the pan for biscuits, cornbread, etc… Do you think making the mixture with cornmeal would work?
