A Sugar Coating

A Sugar Coating

Not sure if this should be under prep or not but it will be. When prepping your pans for the batter, instead of using flour or cake mix to coat the pan, use granulated sugar. It gives a nice crisp outer edge and I think keeps the cake moist longer.

I buy a cheap box of the round coffee filters to put my spatula or beaters on.They are grease resistant so your counter stays clean.
