Wilton Cake Release Clone Recipe

Many turn to spray oils to help with their baking however, I don't like to use aerosol sprays due to additives.  They tend to be a lung irritant, they are expensive and they are not eco-friendly.  I use a health mister which is a reusable spray bottle filled with your oil of choice.  However, when it comes to baking cakes you need a bit more of a release agent even if using silicone bakeware.  Here is a clone recipe for Wilton Cake Release.  It is quick and easy to make but not very photogenic (sorry, no picture).  The cake release will keep nicely in the pantry without refrigeration.  I make it a 1 cup total measure but if you do a lot of cake and muffin baking you may need to make a larger batch.  This recipe will cost you only pennies, well under $1 depending on how much you make in comparison to Wilton Cake Release at $5.99 per can.
