This faux Pam Spray Pan Release is one great way to use what you have and pinch your pennies. And it's more eco-friendly (no fumes) and frugal with no can to dispose of.
This will not leave burnt on black residue on the edges of your pans either. (I hate that! how about you?) The shelf life is great... it will keep forever in your cupboard.
1/2 cup corn oil or canola oil or vegetable oil
1/2 cup vegetable shortening, room temperature (Crisco shortening is good)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Using an electric mixer beat until mixture has multiplied in volume, and resembles marshmallow cream. yields: 1 1/2 cups
Place in a storage container, and store on the counter, or in a cupboard.
In hot weather, it may be refrigerated, but remember to take it out of the fridge, as it should be room temperature for best results.
The mixture tends to separate slightly upon sitting so mix before using, then brush pans using a pastry brush or a clean paper towel.
