Proper pan preparation will result in easy removal of the finish baked goods. There are several preparation methods that work well. Read the recipe carefully to identify the proper method to use. Some baked goods do not require special pan preparation so it is important to follow the recipe's instructions. Prepare the pan before mixing the batter so that the batter can be added to the pan as soon as it is done and then placed in the oven. This is important with some batters because they may loose their leavening power if they are left to stand too long. Some common pan preparation methods are shown below.
