PAM baking spray - thanks for ruining my cake - Page 2

post #16 of 32
For those of you using the hame-made pan 'grease': In really humid areas you can/should add about 1/2 cup cornstarch to the flour/oil/shortening mixture.

This mixture has been round for over the 35+ yrs I have been baking icon_smile.gif I keep it in an old plastic container on the kitchen counter. I also keep a thick round (2") pastry brush nearby for brushing it on the pan. Don't store the bursh IN the mixture container.
I alwasy mixed it up w/my KA - wire whip for about 5 minutes - until it is light, fluffy like whipped cream. As it sits on the counter - especially in warmer weather - it will seperate some w/the oil seperating out on the bottom. If it's done that it's time to rewhip it.

I've been using the Pam for Baking with no problem, but recently decided to try the pan grease. My recipe is 1 c. oil, 1 c. shortening, 1 c. flour. I just used that this past week for the first time because I've heard it works better and is more cost effective, and I loved it. The Pam for Baking works great also in my opinion though.

I used Pam spray for many years and had not problems. I will still use it if I run out of spray from Restaurant Depot and no problems even if I don't put any parchment circles in. I hate using shortening and flour, to me it leaves an oily flourly film on the cakes, thus the spray. OP sorry you had a problem with your cake.

Thanks for all the replies everyone.. I'm not sure what went wrong with the PAM. I've made a lot of cakes with other sprays, and also the shortening/flour method and never had a problem like this. I'll probably try the homemade pan grease at some point, but for now the Baker's Joy is working great.

I used a spray grease once. Overspray ALL over my floor. Slipped and down I went! I obviously can't be trusted with an aerosol can...

I use Baker's Joy. It works great for me when I'm too lazy to do the shortening/flour routine (which is often).

I have used Pam for Baking and it trashes my cakes. I don't know why, but I'll never use it again.

I don't keep vegetable oil on hand.. Will olive or canola oil work with the recipe? I don't see what it'd hurt...

I always use parchment on the bottom of my pan, and liberally spray the sides with a baking spray. I've used both baker's joy and the pam for baking with no problems as long as I parchment the cake pan too.

I may have to try this pan grease stuff though seeing as how it's cheaper. As long as I store it out of my 2 yr old's reach! (He is a genius for getting into things...)

I have just used the regular PAM. Never a problem. The cake grease how do you put it on your pans and isn't it harder to get into the the shaped pans?

To me, olive oil has a very distinct flavor and most often it is really strong. I LOVE it to cook with, but I do not think that would be a pleasant taste in a cake.

I don't see why canola oil couldn't be used though.

You should use teflon sheets then. Much safer haha icon_biggrin.gif

Yes SScakery you can use canola oil....I have also used olive oil as long as it's the very light stuff...doesn't leave a flavor as the evoo does. Kimmi1963 you put it on your pans with a pastry brush and brush on a thin layer on bottom and sides. Works better than spray as you can get into all the nooks and crannies of shaped pans like ornate bundts etc.
For all those who have never tried it before and are going to please let us know how it worked for you.
