Sign of the Times

This is a little embarrassing, but here goes: I was making batter for banana bread and everything was going along just fine. Until I got to the step in which the batter is poured into a *prepared pan*. So far, so good until I reach for my handy can of cooking spray with flour built right in only to find that it won't spray at all. It's completely clogged! I run the nozzle under hot water because I read somewhere that that's the thing to do in these situations, but it didn't work. So there I am in the kitchen, on the verge of what feels a little like panic, trying to figure out what to do. Do I run to the store? Do I dump the batter and just forget the whole thing? Or...here is where the flash of brilliance comes in...do I do it the old fashioned way? Remember when we used to actually butter and flour pans as opposed to just spraying them? It's sad really that this was the last option to occur to me. So anyway, that's what I did and, sure enough, it worked just as well as it did back in the old days.

  2. Sometimes the simplest solutions are the hardest to come by! We are so spoiled with all the short cuts we have that our grandparents did not, yet we have "less" time. Why is that?

  3. I'm glad the butter and flour worked out for you. Sometimes I use Pam and sometimes I do it the old fashioned way. I have to admit, though, the Pam for baking seems to work best in my bundt pan.
