Miracle Pan Release ( A.K.A. "Bakers Joy")

Make Your Own Bakers Joy or Cake Release. Miracle Pan Release is a money saving must make before your serious holiday baking begins!:
Cake Release
If you do any baking and have a recipe that requires you to grease and flour your pan, you have probably ended up with some "flour lumps" on the bottoms of your cakes, or breads. Miracle Pan Release is just that, it is the perfect blend of the oil and flour that will not leave your baked goods with flour bottoms! Even better is the fact that you already have the ingredients at home in your pantry!  If you have ever purchased Bakers Joy brand spray (contains the flour and the non stick spray together) or the Wilton's brand  Cake Release then you know how very expensive they can be!

Here is a recipe for making your own Miracle Pan Release from: veronicascornucopia.com  It is so inexpensive and also really does work super well with your baking, you will never go back to purchasing it or shaking loose flour around a greased pan again!

This would make a very nice and thrifty gift for your favorite baker along with a  mix in a jar for brownies or cake.

Jan's Tip: You can make it in any amount, just use equal amounts of all 3 ingredients. I made half of the recipe below and will have plenty for a long time, since I don't bake often.

Miracle Pan Release:

1/2 cup shortening (Crisco type)
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
1/2 cup flour

Mix together and store in air tight container.  TO USE:  wipe a thin layer evenly on bottom of baking pan



  1. When I was young my mom taught me to cut out wax paper to line the bottom of cake pans with and just spray the sides. I've always done that it's worked out great. For Chocolate cakes I'll spray the pan and use cocoa powder to help with the release.

    1. That would be a great use for empty wax paper cereal bag liners wouldn't it? Great idea! I don't bake often and always forget to try the cocoa powder thing! I am determined to remember it next time1
      Your the best!
