Saving Cake Batter

I don't have any Crisco or pan release..and I've already mixed the cake batter. Will the batter save well in the fridge to use tomorrow morning?

  • you can save it yes... if you have some butter you can grease your pan with that and dust your pan with flour....

  • The batter will save in the fridge, but the baking soda/powder starts working once the batter's mixed. I've saved cake batter but noticed that it doesn't raise as much as if I'd baked it fresh.

    Are you using a special kind of pan? I bake a lot (also a cake decorator) and I always interchange butter/margarine/vegetable oil/Crisco. I've got a great pan release that mixes 1/2 c. Crisco, 1/2 c. vegetable oil, and 1/2 c. flour, then just grease the pan with it (store the extra in airtight container). Works great, every time.

  • Thank you! I'll definitely try that pan release! It's a pan for decorating I'm attempting a pretty cool cake for my daughter's first birthday. I ended up just using butter on the bottom of the pan, and lining the bottom with parchment paper. Hopefully it will work out well!!

  • Parchment paper was a great idea! Good luck!
