I keep a collection of cooking magazines for reference, and often thumb through past issues in search of a new recipe, a fresh idea, or just to look at the beautiful photography.  One day I came across a suggestion that has worked like a charm for me.

When making baked goods, recipes often tell you to butter and flour a pan - a step I often omit in favor of parchment paper.  When baking a layer cake however, I will usually use parchment on the bottom, then butter and SUGAR the pan.  The layer pops out without difficulty & I don't need to worry about streaks of flour besmirching my lovely cake.

Brilliant! Sugar instead of flour.

Thanks for the tip!
