Alton Brown - Kustom Kitchen Lube

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by SusieQusie

No, it's not for squeaky door hinges. Keep a batch in your pantry to *coat baking pans* and prevent baked goods from sticking. It's so much faster and more convenient than the greasing and flouring business. I use a paper towel to smear it on liberally and haven't had a cake or muffin stick yet. That Alton is one smart man!

I made it with Tenderflake (that's what I had) and all purpose flour. I put it in a pyrex square pan to bake a cake and the cake didn't stick to the pan. Thanks SusieQusie :) Made for bargain basement tag game

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Toss both ingredients in a stand mixer and take them for a ride on low speed until the shortening sucks up the flour.
  2. Then hike up the speed to medium to aerate it a bit - just 30 seconds or so.
  3. Store in the pantry in a resealable container and use to lube any type of baking pan by brushing on or smearing around with a clean paper towel.
