Instructions
  1. Put all ingredients in your mixer, and beat with a paddle until smooth.
  2. Spread into your pan with a pastry brush or silicone basting brush. I like to add a parchment collar, but that is optional.
  3. Be sure to release the pan from your cake after about 10 minutes of cooling. If you do allow it to stay on the cake for too long, it can solidify with the cake and chunks can come off.
Recipe Notes

Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 months. Nothing in the recipe is highly perishable. As we know, oil can go rancid, so beware of your product's dates.

    Love, love, LOVE goop. I’m over pan spray. This stuff is IT. Just don’t over do it. More is not better, it’ll leave your cakes soggy on the edges. But an even coating will make you cake practically hop out of the pan!

    Hi, can you please let me know why you use goop instead of spray and cook. You are still placing your baking paper over it, so the cake doesn’t touch the goop

      Hey Caroline! I do use the goop over the spray and cook. You can use the spray and cook, however I appreciate the thickness of the goop that acts not only as a release but also it will keep my parchment paper in place. I will put it on both sides of the paper 🙂
