Tips

Pan prep

Pan prep

When the recipe says to grease and flour the pan before the mix is poured in I will spray the pan with a non-stick cooking spray and depending on the cakes flavor use sugar or chocolate powdered drink mix instead of flour. I have used sugar as the base for chocolate cakes and it crisps up the bottom nicely.

Having trouble spreading your peanut butter? Just place the jar into the microwave for 20-30 seconds at a time to soften to a super sreadable consistancy.
