Homemade Cake Release

I am forever having my cakes stick to my bundt pan.  Always!  It never fails.  Whenever I want to bake a bundt cake I am both filled with excitement and dread.  Now, there are no worries!  I remembered my step daughter, Carla,  told me about making your own cake release and I have finally made it!  This recipe has been around forever, I don't know why I haven't been using it before now.  It was such a relief to see my little bundt cakes come out of the pan without sticking.  Love this!  Just brush the cake release in your pan and wait for your perfect cake to come out of the oven.  Use them with my Sour Cream Pound Cake, Lemon Fizz Cake, Cooked Apple Coffee Cake, Carrot Cake .. everything you bake!  Use what you want and leave the rest in the refrigerator.  Now, get out your bundt pan and bake away!

Homemade Cake Release

1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup oil
1 cup shortening
Or...equal amounts of each ingredient

Mix all together until completely incorporated.  Use what you need and store the rest in the refrigerator for later use.

Really?!?! Seriously?!?! I ruined 5, yes FIVE bundt cakes today because they wouldn't release - I sprayed the crud out of those pan with Baker's Joy and then each one came out in chunks. I should have read this before I started baking. I'm going to pin this and use it next time!
