Alton Brown - Kustom Kitchen Lube
photo by SusieQusie
- Ready In:
- 2 cups solid shortening (Crisco preferred)
- 1 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- Toss both ingredients in a stand mixer and take them for a ride on low speed until the shortening sucks up the flour.
- Then hike up the speed to medium to aerate it a bit - just 30 seconds or so.
- 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.

I tagged this in Please Review bcz I love Alton Brown. I tried this with Spectrum's Organic Shortening and whole wheat flour. Not sure if using the whole wheat changed it, but I didn't see a big difference between that and just spraying with cooking spray. I made muffins and one actually stuck. Would love to see someone else review it who used all-purpose flour.
