Most commercial baking sprays are made with vegetable oil, which makes this a no brainer when it comes to using this as a replacement to grease your pans.

The traditional way to grease a pan is with shortening or butter and flour.

What does flouring a cake pan do?
The answer is twofold. The flour helps the cake batter grip the sides of the pan so that it rises evenly. It also creates a barrier between the butter and the batter to prevent the butter from melting into the batter.
Can you bake a cake without flouring the pan?
(Essentially, the cake will slide out of the pan without a hitch.) However, flouring a cake pan after you’ve greased it is not absolutely necessary, and some bakers opt to simply grease their cake pans because the flour can contribute to a thicker, drier crust on some cakes, which some consider unpleasant.
How do you fix too much sugar in a cake?
With cakes that have a high sugar content, we recommend adding just a little more sugar to the mix. Use your fingers to coat the inside of the pan with softened butter and then, instead of adding flour, add a tablespoon or two of sugar to the pan. Shake and turn the pan until the sugar coats the butter and then pour out any excess.
Do you need to flour a baking pan when baking cake?
When baking a cake, you’re used to buttering and flouring the pan. Coat the cake pan with butter, and then sift flour onto the greased pan, knocking the pan with your wrist to remove excess flour and make sure the pan is coated evenly. It’s a necessary step, but we’ve got a better idea.
How much sugar do you put in a cake mix?

How do I know if my cake recipe is too sweet?
I always make a judgment call based on the recipe itself. If you’re making an especially dense cake that has a high sugar content already, it should form a darker/golden crust when baking and sugaring the pan can sometimes be overkill. I also like to mix sugar and cocoa powder together for chocolate cakes.
