Thanks for this recipe.  I've just made some to grease my new bundt pan with tomorrow - don't want the first cake to stick to the pan!

Will be making this too. Saves having to melt a little butter. Thanks for the posting.

Please forgive me for asking - but why would you use a hydrogenated fat (copha)?
Isn't that a big no-no nowadays due to the hydrogenation?
Would this work with just coconut butter/fat/non-hydrogenated whatever version?
Thanks

I think it may work with coconut oil, not sure.

Teagg, I've seen other recipes that use shortening instead of copha.

I'm not too concerned as I used less than a teaspoon to glaze a whole pan.  There's always the old butter and flour method but when I use this method I end up with flour on the cake and if you don't ice it it doesn't look too great.

Wow. My bundt tin has small dimples that don't cope with oil and flour. Don't have copes but do have coconut oil. Look forward to trying this. So excited.

Have made some of this for my Christmas hampers.  Uni, I take it you give it a good stir or shake before using it?  Also, the original recipe says to keep it in the fridge but you say that is not necessary - do you really leave yours in the pantry?  Does it set too solid in the fridge?

I made this a few weeks ago with coconut oil, just keeping it in the cupboard, yes Judy seems to need a stir or shake before using, loving it so far.

This looks great. I don't have any copha but might give it a try with coconut oil which I have plenty of.

JD in winter I keep it out and in summer the bulk of it will be in the fridge, have a shot glass full on the kitchen bench ready for use .

  A few sites say refrigeration not  required

Thanks Uni.  I've just sent some home with friends who came to clean out my gutters (well the husband did, the wife and I talked and drank coffee ;D - she intended making a cake when she returned home anyway so it was very timely).

I made a batch using 1 cup measurements so if I was to keep some in the fridge, is it possible to brush with it once it really hardens up or do you have to remove some prior to cooking to soften it?

not that hard JD, easy with a spoon straight onto the pan then brush it

I keep mine in the pantry usually. It seems to get used fairly quickly.

Wonderful stuff. Found a new use for it.  Brush on baking tray before putting Nacho chips and cheese on tray.  Didn't stick.
I leave it on the bench if I am doing a lot of baking.  In fridge if not using for a week.  I use coconut oil and give it a good stir before using as it does separate. Put plenty on.

Is that coconut oil instead of copha? If so which veg oil do you use?
Thanks DJ

This is amazing stuff.  I brush,  generously my crockpot, (SC, ) with it before baking bread.
I made it with coconut oil, instead of copha. Any neutral flavored oil would work as the 3 rd component. I make 3 cups at a time and give all but one cup to friends.
I also brush the SS dish that I bake the 35 minute rolls in, in the AF.

About to make another lot. Love it.

I still haven't made this, will need to add it to my list for the weekend. Would canola oil be OK?

Ive never tried this. Will make it today. Thankyou.

wonder, try  coconut oil, ACW makes it with coconut oil so it must be good
Title: Re: Cake release from fundj
Post by: achookwoman on May 08, 2015, 03:51:46 am
Yes it is excellent with Coconut oil instead if cop ha. I use Canola or rice bran as the oil and add a tiny bit more flour.

Made it this morning and used for cake this afternoon. Its terrific. Will try coconut oil next time.

I make up a jar full and leave a pastry brush in it. This time of the year I leave it on the bench and it is a good consistency to use.  I use it in my mini SC when making a mini loaf of bread. I haven't used my silicon liners for ages.

Post by: judydawn on May 09, 2015, 12:38:17 am
I do the same Chookie, it's so handy having it right there.  I've given the recipe and a pot of it to a couple of friends, one in particular absolutely loves it and even her grand-son wanted to make some as he bakes a lot at home and not just when he's with his Grand-mother.  Best thing since sliced bread  ;D

I'm another one who loves this. It's so useful.

Post by: JulieO on May 09, 2015, 11:56:42 pm
I made this yesterday using the quantities in the recipe.  I've read how it's ok to leave on the bench/pantry especially now we are in the cooler months but I just wanted to double check that even if only using every few weeks or so it would still be safe to do so?  I don't bake very often these days (peek a boo pudding aside)  ;D so wondered if I really should keep it in the fridge.  ???
Title: Re: Cake release from fundj
Post by: Aussie Brenda on May 10, 2015, 12:16:34 am
Julie I use this all the time and just keep in in the cupboard near the stove, I use it on lots of things, if I'm cooking in the AF just give the pastries (raw) a quick brush,  the Jaffel iron in the open fire,  etc .
Title: Re: Cake release from fundj
Post by: fundj&e on May 10, 2015, 12:22:58 am
julie, just put some in a small jar and leave it on the beach and the rest in the fridge
Title: Re: Cake release from fundj
Post by: achookwoman on May 10, 2015, 08:31:03 am
If I am not baking every day I keep it in the fridge.  I make 3 times the suggested quantity.

I made this over the weekend and was really pleased at how well it worked.  I experimented by using it when I was roasting butternut in the oven and it worked perfectly ... perhaps I didn't get the really crunchy bits as you do when you use oil / fat, but the clean up was so quick ... and that was even after I didn't soak the roasting pan until an hour or two afterwards.
Title: Re: Cake release from fundj
Post by: JulieO on May 11, 2015, 01:34:25 am
Thanks for the replies girls.  I think I'll keep in the fridge as it really won't get used a great deal, I think I'll just feel happier.  :)

Uni, I think it might be a bit difficult to wash off.
