The Best Ways to Get Cake Out of a Pan
With the right prep, a cake will usually slide right out of the pan with ease. But what do you do when it doesn't?
Don't worry! There are several simple methods for getting a stubborn cake out of a pan when it's stuck.
Pour boiled water into a mug and place it in the microwave under your cake pan. Leave it in there for a few minutes without turning on the microwave.
After letting the pan cool for about 15 minutes, put it in your fridge for another 15 minutes. This works well when you're in a hurry.
Soak and wrap a warm dishcloth around the base of your pan. Let it sit for about 15 minutes to warm and expand the pan.
With your cake still in the pan, place it on a cooling rack. This allows air to flow to all sides of the pan, helping it to cool more quickly.
