IMG_0166small Miracle pan release: This is also my standby. Here's the recipe: 1 cup shortening or lard 3/4 cup cooking oil 1 cup flour, all purpose. whip together until smooth and creamy. Completely grease pan with this and after baking your cake, let the cake sit for ten minutes before removing from pan. Works wonders! Store the cake release in an airtight container and stir before reusing as it may separate. Thanks to the website of the picture shown for the reminder.
