Can You Line Brownie Pan with Parchment Paper?

Yes, it’s good to line brownie pan with parchment paper for easy removal of brownies from pan.

Instead of baking brownie, cupcakes, or snack bar in a pan and then trying to pry them out with a scraper once they’re done, grab a sheet of parchment paper. When preparing brownies in the future, line your baking dish with parchment sheet, coat it with nonstick spray or some oil, and then add the batter.

When the brownies are done baking, just pull the parchment paper and brownies out of the pan, and cut into uniform squares.

Even though seasoned cooks have probably been doing this for years, if you’re still spreading oil or butter into your baking dish and crossing your fingers when the timer beeps off, you can do better. You’ll want to use oil or spray nonetheless.

Coat your baking pan bottom?

Use it to coat the baking dish bottom, and then lay a sheet of parchment paper inside, letting it hang over the sides by a couple of inches. Finally, spray the parchment paper again and add another sheet in the other direction.

It is important that the parchment paper adheres to the dish and to itself. Add a bit more oil, and afterwards your batter, and stir to combine.

Wait for your baked brownies, cake, and snack bars to cool slightly, and then remove them from the pan using the parchment paper handles. If everything comes out at once, you can slice them equally without having to pull them out with a scraper or fight with a knife.

Tips for using a Parchment Paper for lining brownie pan

Before anything else, you’ll need to ensure sure the parchment paper you purchase, whether in a roll or individual sheets, is larger than the baking pan. The next step is to set your pan on top of your parchment paper and check that the four corners match up.

Then snip a slit of three to four inches through each of the paper’s corners. By doing so, two flaps are created at each side, which are required for a proper fit of the sheet. Press the paper into the pan’s corners and it will automatically fold into place. Well, you can consider that task completed. You won’t need to exert as much effort to trim the paper so that it fits evenly into the pan’s corners.


Since parchment paper is naturally non-stick, greasing it is usually unnecessary. Greasing your parchment paper before baking cookies will cause the cookies to spread too much and turn out oily, so it’s best to avoid doing so.

To top it all off, after your cake is finished baking, it will slip right out of your pan, sparing you the hassle of having to remove the cake from your pan without destroying it. Don’t bother slamming the pan on the counter or using a knife to remove the cake. The cake can be easily removed from the pan by tipping it on its side and gently pulling on the parchment paper.
