Hi Josi
I am so glad you found the recipe on my blog. I know I love this stuff and I will never use anything else :)

I tried something similar, but this recipe is a keeper. No more buying the canned spray stuff again or tapping flour around a greased pan only to get it all over the place. Thank you...

Hello what type of flour do you use? And can you use sunflower oil instead of vegetable oil?

Morgan Garrison said...

Hi, that is a great question! I use regular all purpose flour and yes, sunflower oil should work just fine. Thanks for the question and good luck! Let me know if you any other questions!

Wow! I just wanted to thank you for the cake release recipe! I usually use parchment paper for my cakes, but that is such a hassle. I tried this recipe today for a cake that I am making for an event we are having tomorrow and it came out perfectly! Thank you again!

What is the shelf life for this? Thank You

I store my leftover cake release in a tupperware in the fridge. I have yet to have any go bad. It usually takes me a couple of months to run through 1 batch. As long as it is stored in the fridge it should last you a while.

Thanks for posting this. I get so tired of having to clean flour off of everything after using shortening and flour in my pans. Does it work well with chocolate cakes? I know I had to use coco instead of flour when doing my pans the old way.

Ashley said...

Thanks so much for posting. I usually use shortening and flour but its so messy and gets everywhere. Does this work well on chocolate cakes? I did use cocoa instead of flour with the shortening so my cakes wouldn't have a flour film on them.

Morgan Garrison said...

Hi Ashley, yes it works for chocolate cakes, in fact it works for just about any baked good, brownies, rolls, bread, ect.

Hi there. I was doing a search on cake release since the Wilton stuff smells pretty bad. Thought I'd answer the lady from the UK.

Based on "The Cake Bible" book, 1 Cup dip and sweep is equivalent to 145 grams.

If it's lightly spooned, it's 121 grams.

I am guessing that it's closer to 145 grams.

Morgan Garrison said...

Hi goldenbaby, Crisco is just a brand name for solid vegetable shortening. I'm not sure what the equivalent is in the uk.

Lyns said...

Seems like it is a 1:1:1 ration on ingredients, so making a small bath would just mean use equal parts, right? Anyone ever tried that?

Morgan Garrison said...

Hi Lyns,
Yes, that is correct. It is a 1:1:1 ratio. If you are wanting a smaller batch, 1/4 cup of each would be good. You could even do 1/8 of a cup. Hope that helps.

Hi Morgan,

Thank you for sharing this recipe. Can I use the butter flavored Crisco as they is what I have in my cupboard or is it too soft?

Thank you.

Morgan Garrison said...

Hi Brenda, that is a good question. I have never tried it with the butter crisco so I can't say for sure. However I don't see why it wouldn't work.
