Cake tin (baking) question

I am new to baking and have invested in a suitably flash looking baking tin from Lakeland - one that lets you take the bottom out for easier access. However, all the recipes I am looking at insist that you need to line your baking tin. Do i? I would have thought at most a bit of butter in the tin would work?

Must admit, I have some of those cake tins but I always line the bottom with greaseproof paper. Maybe just butter would be ok - Someone more knowledgeable may come along soon smile

My mum always buttered and then shook some flour around in the tin to make it stickproof.

butter alone won't do it - you need the paper!

I often just butter (generously) on a spring-form tin and it works

I always line sandwich tins though

Either butter and flour


Lakeland cake release - fab stuff!


Cake tin liners - you can get seperate ones which line bottom and sides so ideal for tins you can take the bottom off of.

Butter lining and flour shook around cheapest though!

Thanks all. Sounds like there are as many options as there are people baking! I will experiment - cautiously.

Yesterday's cake was a roaring success .... except that I hadn't read the part of the instructions that required it to be set for a few hours. So it turned into dessert instead of tea!
