I read a lot of baking blogs... A WHOLE LOT!  One of the most beautiful blogs is from I AM BAKER .   Visit this site and you will find recipes for the most wonderful cakes and bakes and some very helpful tips.  

This recipe for GOOP is an excellent example.  Buttering and flouring a muffin tin is a bit of a mess, but from now on I am going to use GOOP!  Here's how to make it:

GOOP! (aka Home made cake release)

1 cup shortening (think Trex or Crisco)
1 cup plain flour
1 cup vegetable oil (I use canola)

Place all the ingredients into a bowl and beat it by hand until all the ingredient are combined and the texture is creamy.  

Store the GOOP in an airtight container, in the refrigerator. When you are ready to bake,  use a pastry brush to spread the GOOP over the sides and bottom of your baking tin.  Brilliant idea!

  1. Thanks for this Debs - very handy stuff. I'm always surprised that cake-release spray isn't a thing here, when Pam is so widely used in the US.
    And thanks for introducing me to another great blog!

    1. It's a beautiful blog and I am sure we will find this GOOP very helpful. : D
