How to Prepare Your Baking Pans

Preparing your Baking Pans
Preparation is the key to all cake recipes. To make sure that the cake doesn't stick to the pan, I tend to grease and flour my baking pans. To grease and flour a pan, you need to: 1. Coat the bottom and sides of the inside of the baking pan with a thin layer of shortening- margarine or butter is good for this 2. Put a little shortening on a piece of rolled up kitchen roll, or a pastry brush, and rub this over the insides of the pan- this gives a very thin, even layer. 3. Sprinkle a little flour into the baking pan, and, over the sink, tip the pan to the side and pat the sides of the pan to distribute the flour evenly across the bottom and the sides
