How to Grease a Pan
Steps to Properly Grease & Flour a Pan:
1) Dip a piece of waxed paper into your shortening (Crisco). Rub the shortening over the entire baking pan. Be sure to cover the entire interior of the pan.
2) Sprinkle about a Tablespoon of All-purpose flour into the greased pan. Shake and tap your pan until the inside of the pan is completely coated with a thin layer of flour. Then shake out and discard any excess flour (or add a little more if the whole pan did not get coated).
That’s the best way to grease a pan, necessary steps if baking a cake.
