My mom gave me this tip a few years ago. When a cake mix calls for greasing and flouring the pans, she uses butter to grease and some of the dry cake mix to flour the pan. The cake doesn't end up with white on the outside and it doesn't taste bad like flour would.

I used sugar to dust my cake pans. first i grease them good with Crisco then sprinkle with sugar. Not only does this make a more moist cake the sugary residue melts easily in water, making clean up a breeze.
Wow! What a great idea! I bake all the time and never thought of that. Sometimes it's the simplest things that make a big difference!
