My Best Kept Secret!

Pan Release (You're really gonna love this!)

This week's recipe isn't pretty, good tasting or even gourmet is the one of the best recipes that I have ever found!!!   And here it is!!
If you haven't ever tried this pan release this is going to change your life!  It is so simple but the first time I tried it I was blown away.  Everything I use it on comes out of the pan perfectly...  It is so amazing.  I have gone through my share of times crying over cakes that had places that stuck to the pan.  I had to run a knife around the sides of loaves of quick bread or even regular bread to get them to finally come out and even then the sides were all ratty and messy because it got stuck!
NO MORE!  When you spread this on a cake or bread pan your product comes out so beautifully.  It just slides right out like this----

 This recipe is found in many places so I am not sure who the original came from.  (If you know please let me know so I can give them credit.  I would also like to personally send them a thank you letter because I really love this stuff.  

Pan Release

1 part flour
1 part shortening
1/2 part vegetable oil

You can make any amount as long as you follow this guide.  For example, I usually use 

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup shortening
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Mix it together well with a wisk and brush on pan. 

Make sure not to miss any spots.  I keep the remaining mix in my fridge in a covered container.  This keeps well for a few months if refrigerated. 

I would also appreciate it if you kept this just between us.  It's kind of a secret!!
