I LOVE Bundt Cakes. Everything about them…the flavours, the possibilities, but especially the pans. Who can resist a beautifully shaped cake made in the most beautiful pans?! Not this gal.

Bundt Cake Baking Tips:
- Make sure to prepare your pans properly. I like to use a flour/oil spray (Pam has a really good one) to prepare all of my pans. I won’t bake a Bundt Cake without it.
- Because the cakes are so pretty on their own, you don’t even have to frost them. Sometimes I like to add a glaze or a dusting of icing sugar, but I never frost them. Just make sure that your cake is completely cooled before adding anything.
- Make sure you use the right size pan. The bigger the pan, the smaller the cake and the less baking time required. The smaller the pan, the taller the cake, more baking time. And make sure your pan can hold all the batter. A good rule to follow is that the batter should only fill 2/3 of the pan. I typically use a 10-12 cup size pan for my recipes.
- I will never use a silicone Bundt Pan. I’m just not a fan of silicone anything because I find that the cakes/cupcakes/whatever always stick to the pan. I use metal pans for my Bundt Cakes.
- Let your Bundt Cake cool before turning it out onto a plate. I typically let my cakes rest and cool for at least 10 minutes before I try to turn it onto a plate…I usually aim for 20 minutes so that the cake has enough time to cool and come away from the sides of the pan.
- How to turn a Bundt Pan onto a plate. Once your cake has cooled, place a serving plate over the top of the cake, then holding the plate tightly to the pan, invert the cake over and the cake should slide out onto the plate. Gently remove the pan.
- Do not use metal in your pan. You don’t want to scratch your Bundt Pan so don’t use a metal knife or spatula to try to remove your cake from the pan. Use a rubber spatula instead.
