plastic spray bottle, preferably one with a mist setting as well as spray
cooking oil (vegetable oil, canola oil, or olive oil)

Combine equal parts cooking oil and liquid lecithin-a natural emulsifier available at most health food stores and some drugstores-in a clean spray or pump bottle. Place a label on the bottle.

Shake the bottle well before use.

Additional Information

When baking cakes, coffeecakes or muffins (any bake good that expands within a pan), it is best to use Pan Release to grease the pan. Pan release will prevent anything from sticking in the pan and you will not need to use a knife along the edge of the pan to dislodge the food before turning out the baked good.


Store in pantry.
