How to Grease and Flour a Baking Pan
Spread shortening onto bottom and up sides of baking pan with a paper towel or piece of waxed paper until lightly coated. Then, sprinkle bottom of pan with small amount of flour. Tap pan with your hand while rotating pan until bottom and sides of pan are evenly coated with flour. Holding pan upside down, tap out any excess flour.
How to Safely Add Eggs to a Recipe
When adding eggs to a recipe, break them, one at a time, into a small bowl before adding to the other ingredients. This is not only an easy way to add eggs gradually but also lets you check the egg's quality first and remove any pieces of shell.
