Cake Pan Tip

I love to bake cakes!  Not only are they tasty, they are a crowd pleaser, and a sure thing when you need to take something to a potluck or when bringing dessert to a friends house.  When I bake a white, yellow, or other light colored cakes, I dust the pan with flour so the cake releases nicely from the pan. 

 When I bake a chocolate cake, I use the tip my mother taught me when I a kid helping in the kitchen.  Instead of using flour to dust the pan, use cocoa powder.  It gives you the same result without the unsightly white ring around your cake.

My new cookbook is available at schools, businesses, hospitals, and book fairs in cities across the United States.  Be sure to pick up a copy or two, when you see them.  They make great gifts!

Check back on Friday,

  1. I will do this the next time! Thanks and have a good week, Linda!

  2. This is a great idea! I've made chocolate cakes where the flour sticks to the outside and people think it's powdered sugar. It is not a nice surprise!Thanks for posting this for us!
