Bundt Cake Tips

  • Start with a good quality, nonstick bundt pan. This is so important for getting the cake out of the pan.
  • Spray the pan with nonstick cooking spray right before adding the cake batter. Doing this step too soon allows the spray to pool at the bottom of the pan and can make the cake stick.
  • Do not over bake the Christmas bundt cakes. Do not wait until the toothpick comes out clean. Pull the cake from the oven once there are a few crumbs but no raw batter on the toothpick.
  • Follow the recipe for cooling instructions. Some cakes only need to cool in the pan for 10 minutes and others need a bit longer. Trying to turn the cake from the pan too soon can make the cake stick to the pan.
