“A great make ahead dessert from Kelloggs website that is best made at least one week before serving. After cooling, wrap carefully and store in airtight container at room temperature. Instead of using cooking spray to prepare the pan, I used Pan Release, Professional Pan Coating (Better Than Pam Spray!). It's a terrific pan release mixture to keep on hand for greasing pans for everything like cakes, muffins, and even casseroles too.”
