    Hi,
    what does "crease" mean in this sentence?

    "Lightly crease and flour a cake pan."

    I've looked this word up in my dictionaries, but the answers I got do not match the context.


    crease
    verb [I or T]
    If cloth, paper, etc. creases, or if you crease it, it gets a line in it where it has been folded or crushed.

    "Lightly crease and flour a cake pan."
    A typo; the term is "Lightly Grease and flour a cake pan"

    Hi

    It should be grease, e.g. with butter, vegetable oil, etc.

    Good cooking.
