What can replace baking parchment: will foil save the day?
Parchment paper is our go-to for cooking delicacies because it prevents the dough from sticking to the baking tray. But often, housewives forget to buy it, and when the dish is ready to go into the oven, there is no time to run to the store.
However, there is no need to worry, there are many options for replacing parchment. You just need to follow some rules to make sure that the dish turns out perfectly.
For example, foil is ideal for baking. For flour products, grease it generously with oil, and for fish and meat, a dry surface is sufficient.
Place a sheet of foil on a baking tray with the matte side, and pour the batter onto the shiny side, so it won't stick or burn.
If you want to surprise your family or friends with an interesting baking shape, foil is the perfect choice. All you need to do is cut a few sheets and make the shape you want. The material will hold well and won't tear.
You can also replace parchment with office or drawing paper, which should be oiled on both sides. Even the paper bags used for baking in supermarkets will do.
If you have a silicone mat, don't be afraid to use it, it won't melt in the oven.
But it may also happen that you don't have these things in your kitchen. Then grease a baking tray well with oil or fat and cover everything with semolina or breadcrumbs. The mixture will not stick to the dough, and the pastries will not burn.
