You CAN bake cookies on aluminum foil, but you should be aware that they will cook faster and the bottoms will brown more and get crispy. I would suggest using a slightly lower temperature and briefer baking time. Coincidentally, King Arthur Flour just posted an image of cookies baked on a bare, dark-metal baking sheet (cookies on the LEFT), which will ...

You can't effectively line a Bundt pan with paper. My favorite method is to mix cake release and keep it in the cabinet. It lasts for months and months. Just mix 1 part vegetable oil, 1 part shortening and 1 part flour (roughly, by volume). Brush that mixture in the pan, getting all the nooks and crannies. It doesn't make the mess that traditional flouring ...

Parchment paper and baking paper are the same thing. The terms are used interchangeably. It may sometimes also be called bakery paper. Regardless of the name used, it can be either brown or white. Uses are the same - usually to line pans when baking or to cook foods en papillote. From MetsaTissue , which is headquartered in Finland and sells primarily to ...

Plain pencil is what is normally used. The trick is that you draw on the reverse side of the parchment, and then flip it over so the food is on the non-written on side.

Yes, certainly you can. For that matter, you can simply grease the cookie sheet itself, although that means scrubbing after baking. Cooking times would be the same as for parchment.

"Parchment" was historically used to refer to a prepared animal skin, so in some areas, either "baking paper" or "greaseproof paper" is the preferred term. I've also seen that some people specifically qualify it as "Baking Parchment" For other differences between English dialects, see Translating cooking terms between US / UK / AU / CA / NZ This ...

It would appear the pan is non stick, in which case buttering and flouring it should be sufficient. The only way to line it with parchment would involve using multiple separate sheets, which might cause weird batter leakages between the sheets.

With a properly non-stick springform pan, the cake should shrink and pull slightly away from the edges as it cools. Don't do anything to it until it's fully cooled (to refrigerator temperature). At that point a spatula might help release, but probably wouldn't be necessary. I would expect parchment paper to be counterproductive. It would absorb some liquid ...

I presume you are talking about cassata Siciliana (Sicilian feast cake) often served at weddings. It being thin (1 - 1.5 cm) slices of pound cake, layered with a ricotta/mascarpone cheese filling, and coated with a chocolate glaze or frosting. In which case you can, but I recommend cutting each layer in half to make 4 total.

Usually you can - our great-grandmothers didn't have parchment paper. There are a few cases where parchment is preferrable, usually with very, very sticky dough. It saves time when it comes to scrubbing the cookie sheet.

there! I just came across your post and wanted to share the secret to getting the crust off of your springform pan in one perfect piece, with all of it intact. Ready for it?! ...The base of the pan is upside down when it's packaged! I'm not sure why they do that, but I have bought many springform pans and they all come that way. I don't know why, but it ...

I have baked crusts with parchment paper underneath several times - it works like a charm!

If you're going to line the tin with something (e.g. if you have a not-non-stick tin), reusable non-stick cooking liner (random Amazon example) is a better bet. You can cut it to size with ordinary scissors, and wash by hand or in a dishwasher.

As long as they are not plastic coated, it is unlikely for anything relevantly toxic to get into the food via vapors just from heating a small household metal object in the same space with the food, below temperatures that will cause anything to melt. That would require some constituent having so high a vapor pressure at 450°F that a lot of it would go into ...

Absolutely. There are only a few cases where parchment and grease/flour are not interchangeable and whoopie pies are not one of them.

If you mean that the parchment is stuck to the bottom of the crackers, try putting the whole thing in the freezer for a while.
