When greasing a tin it’s important that you get all of the bottom as well as the edges because greasing is used to help get out the cake more easily. If you did not grease the tin, then it probably would stick to the side and so consequently when trying to get it out of the tin it would probably break up into a million and one pieces.
You will need:
Something to spread the butter onto the tin with (e.g. a piece of kitchen roll)
1) Get the tin out that you are about to grease and get the butter out.
2) Get your piece of kitchen roll and get some butter onto it.
3) Push the kitchen roll onto the base of the tin and spread around making sure there are no lumps and that every part of the tin has a thin layer of butter.
You Will Need:
1) Put some butter onto a plate and put into the microwave (TheBakerKid tip: when putting something like butter into the microwave, make sure you do it in stints, i.e 10 seconds then stir then another ten seconds and stir etc. If you do it all in one go, it will burn and so consequently won’t taste the same).
2) When melted, then dip your pastry brush into the melted butter and spread across the whole of the tin.
