Pros & Cons of Greasing Vs. Lining A Springform Pan
Greasing vs lining spring form pans is a question that comes up frequently among cooks. It seems like everyone has a different opinion about what works better. I am here to tell you that either way you go, you are going to get good results. Both methods work well but each has advantages and disadvantages. Lining a pan is probably the easiest method. Just line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper and grease the sides. This is great if you are making something that requires a lot of greasing such as cookies or breads. If you are making a cake, you can line the pan with waxed paper and grease the sides after baking. This is a great option because you won’t have to worry about getting any of the greasy mess off of the side of the pan. If you are using a springform pan, you can grease the sides of the pan and then line the bottom with parchment paper. This is a great choice if you are making something where you don’t want the bottom of the pan to stick to the dish. For instance, when you are making cheesecake, you can line the bottom of the springform pan with parchment paper and then grease the sides of the springform pan. Then place the cheesecake mixture into the pan and bake. Once baked, remove the cheesecake from the oven and let cool completely. Then release the springform ring and enjoy!
