I just wanted to share how I've been making cookies, cakes and muffins lately and getting them out of the pan with no damage.
I have a few cake pans that will work for reheating leftovers but have lost their non-stick capabilities. I can't afford to make a cake only to have half of it stay in the pan...especially if it's for a special event! So recently I decided to try lining the pan with parchment paper. This particular kind contains silicone, so it works well, but is heat resistant only up to a certain temperature.
|Trimmed a bit for the round pan...|
What a relief to have the cake pop right out in one piece!*
|*(that little crack is from flipping it to another plate...oops)|
