Yes, you still have to grease your baking tin if you use baking paper (this is why)

Must Try

We totally get it: greasing your baking tin and using baking paper feels a bit redundant. One of the two should also just prevent your cake from sticking to its mold, right? In theory yes, and yet there are plenty of reasons to grease your baking tin if you use baking paper.

Greasing ensures that the baking paper sticks to the baking tin, so it can no longer slide – and that saves a lot of frustration.

Why you should grease your baking pan when you use baking paper

Greasing your baking pan prevents your baking paper from rolling back up

Nothing is more annoying than unrolling things that then want to return to their cocoon. That applies to placemats, posters and yes, also to baking paper. Imagine getting a layer of batter on a parchment paper if it constantly rolls up.

Not only can the paper not roll up, it also cannot move in any other way. This way you prevent your batter from suddenly lying next to the baking paper, because it has been secretly slid away ( been there done that ).

There is no batter between the baking tin and paper

A nice extra: if your baking paper is stuck, you can no longer drop the batter between the mold and the paper – whether by accident or on purpose. That will save you a lot of baking-damaging scrubbing .

Greasing your baking pan prevents ugly dents in your cake

But okay, so much for the reasons that are purely about convenience. Greasing your baking pan also prevents the baking paper from making ugly dents in your baking. And that happens sometimes, especially if you’re too lazy to cut your parchment paper to the right size and stuff it into the pan instead.

That stuffing with greasing may still not be such a good plan, but at least your brownie will get an even outside.

The baking paper will not stick to the baking

Also nice: if the baking paper already sticks to the baking tin, there are fewer reasons to stick to the cake – or even sit in it. There’s nothing more irritating than a cake that might be easy to unmould, only to have paper sticking to it like a baby monkey clinging to its mother.

Still not convinced? Greasing your baking pan is also just a good opportunity to try this tip . You’re welcome!
