Unfortunately, there were a few amateur cooks who weren’t impressed by this time-saving tip.
‘As a baking science major, I know that internal diameter is not equal to external diameter,’ a user emphasized.
‘Dry ingredients and wet ingredients are often separated … this would not work.’
Nevertheless, social media is a gold mine of cooking and baking hacks with a video recently demonstrating the ‘correct way’ to use baking paper.
Mum-of-four Sascha, who runs the Facebook page ‘The Healthy Mummy Health Private Support Group’, shared her clever tactic with the 230,000 women part of the online community.
Since baking paper often springs upwards in an oven tray, Sascha opted to scrunch the paper into a ball before smoothing it out to line the tray.
The resultant folds in the paper prevented it slipping aorund the tray while cooking.
‘For 30 years I have been using baking paper wrong,’ she captioned .
