Trick for Greasing Cake Pans Correctly: Practical Guide for Best Results


The most important thing when making a cake is weighing the ingredients correctly, not overmixing the batter, baking at the recommended temperature, and of course, greasing the pans properly so the cake can be easily removed. Because if the cake sticks to the pan, it can be damaged and fail. Therefore, don’t forget to prepare butter, flour, and parchment paper, and then follow the simple steps below.

Butter and Flour

For super sticky cake batter, you should grease the pan with butter first. Even better if you line it with flour. With these two ingredients, the cake will not stick to the pan after baking.

The method of greasing the pan is very simple. Take butter that has been at room temperature. Using your fingertips, spread the butter evenly over the bottom and sides of the pan. Make sure the butter is not too much or too thick. A thin layer of butter is enough to prevent the cake from sticking to the pan.

After that, put one tablespoon of flour into the pan. Tap the pan to spread the flour and stick it to the entire surface of the pan that has been greased with butter earlier. When the pan is evenly coated, discard any excess flour that does not stick.

Parchment Paper

Parchment paper is a type of paper that is resistant to oil and moisture. Parchment paper will help the cake release from the pan easily and without damage. Therefore, parchment paper is essential when you are going to make a cake. You can buy parchment paper at a baking supply store in the form of rolls, sheets, and pre-cut to fit the size of the pan. If you are using a round pan, you should add parchment paper to the bottom of the pan. To prevent the cake from sticking or adhering to the pan, it is recommended to grease the parchment paper with butter and flour.

Making cakes yourself does have many challenges. Small and simple things like greasing the pan can have a big impact on the final result of the cake. Don’t be afraid to try because by doing so, you will learn the right way. Also, don’t forget to try making cakes with Gusto ready-to-use flour. There are many cake variants that you can try, from brownies, chiffon, sponge cake, and more. Just add eggs, butter, and water, and you can get delicious cakes. It’s easy and guaranteed not to fail.
