This is to avoid your baking goods from becoming too dry, burnt, and etc. So how long it shall need to be reduced? It is recommended to reduced the baking time amount down to 20% from the original recipe. For example, if the original recipe calls for 30 minutes baking time, you may reduce it to 24 minutes. However, it is best to keep an eye out 10 minutes before the baking time ends. To make sure your baked good come out well.

This fat usually helps to avoid from sticking to the cake pan. On top of that, butter usually will contribute to add flavour too. So never skip from greasing your cake mould or else your cake might turn out dry and stuck in the mould.
