A friend sent me an article from theKitchn.com today about using beeswax instead of grease or butter on cookie sheets, baking pans, etc. when baking. I have never heard of this so just like the author of the original article, it was news to me.
The article also claims that over time, the bakeware will retain a natural coating of beeswax so that waxing won’t always be necessary.
I’m intrigued and interested in trying this or hearing other people’s experiences. We’re right in the middle of a heat wave in Ontario right now and I don’t have air conditioning, so there will be no indoor baking until the weather cools down. However once the temperatures are back in a sane range, I’ll be sure to try this trick.
Have you ever heard of baking with beeswax instead of a grease? Have you tried it yourself? Leave a comment below.
