WFMW - Baking pan residue


How many of you use non-stick cooking spray with flour in it when a recipe calls for you to grease and flour a pan?
And how many of you that answered yes to the above have noticed a sticky, grimy residue building up on your pan? A residue that is extremely difficult to get off, without scratching the coating on your pan?
Well, if you guess that the residue and the cooking spray have a correlation, you’re right.
Now, something like goo gone and a bit of elbow grease might be able to get rid of that residue for you. But what works for me is to avoid the build up in the first place. And that means using good old shortening and flour when I bake.

    Dang, I was hoping for a tip on how to get it off, not how to avoid it lol ;) Either way takes about the same time overall I guess, more time to grease and flour & less time to wash, or less time to spray but more time to wash.

    Crisco figured out a way to get the transfat out of their vegetable shortening (most likely through creative math, but…the label says 0 grams!) So back to Crisco for me, too! I spent too much on my cake pans to ruin them!

    A bit of butter and flour…

    I put a bit of butter on kitchenpaper, and rub it in.
    No fat fingers that way.

    Sometimes I “paint” the pan with some oil.
