How to Prevent Bundt Cake from Sticking?

there’s nothing more frustrating than
having a bundt cake that you slaved away
get completely ruined because it got
stuck to your bundt cake pan so today
I’m sharing my six quick tips for a
bundt cake that never sticks be sure to
stay tuned all the way to the end in
case you’re already in the situation
where you have a bundt cake that’s
sticking to your pan and doesn’t want to
come out in just a sec I’ll share my
first bundt cake tip but before that be
sure to hit that little Bell button near
the subscribe button to get notified
when I post new videos first so for the
beautiful bundt cakes that release
easily from the pan it really does start
with the pan you want to be sure to use
a simple quality nonstick buns pan I
like this one from Cuisinarts you can
look online at reviews and figure out
which pans are most loved by other
Baker’s just like you that’s usually how
I searched for my bakeware but what you
really want to be sure is to get a pan
with a simple design the more intricate
your bundt pan design the more likely
sticking and messy ruined bundt cakes
are to happen so simple designs make
stickiness less likely however what’s
most important is actually how you take
care of your bundt pan bundt pans are
kind of delicate that nonstick coating
needs some extra love and attention so
that means you shouldn’t place your pan
in the dishwasher only use gentle
sponges and detergents nothing really
harsh or chemically and you want to be
sure to avoid using metal utensils on
your bundt pan all of these things can
scratch the nonstick surface just as a
know in my online baking class the magic
of baking I talked all about my favorite
bakeware would I look out for what I
always avoid and so so much more if
you’re interested in joining my class
just head on over to handle the heat
comm slash magic to learn more so that
brings us to tip number 2 which is to
use the right type of grease I prefer to
avoid use a nonstick cooking sprays
because they can build up and get gunky
over time and degrade the nonstick
surface of your bundt pan so what I like
to do is use Mel
to shortening and I like to use a pastry
brush to get it into every nook and
cranny of my bundt pan now the reason I
use melted shortening is because it
provides a really nice nonstick coating
I’ve had the best experience with this
the milk solids and butter can get
sticky sometimes and then of course the
nonstick cooking sprays get gunky so
melted shortening is what I found works
the best and when you use a pastry brush
you can just really get it into every
nook and cranny but what you really want
to be careful of doing is only coating
your pan just before you pour the batter
in and bake it if you coat your pan
before you even pulled out your eggs and
butter that’s much too early and what
will happen is the coating will slide
down the sides of the pan and pull in
the bottom and you’ll be left with a
bunch of surface area that isn’t truly
coated in anything so be sure to use
melted shortening coat it just before
you’re prepared to bake off your bundt
cake and use a pastry brush to get it
into every nook and cranny now something
to keep in mind is that different
kitchen environments yield different
results and so use whatever has worked
really well for you and your kitchen
with your equipment what I found is that
flour in your pan with regular
all-purpose flour sometimes leads to
more stickiness or it can ruin the
beautiful look of the exterior of your
bundt cake so what do you use instead of
all-purpose flour well what I found
works really well is actually nut flour
like grounds almond flour which you can
buy it most grocery stores now sometimes
it’s with the gluten-free flours but
this provides a wonderful coating that
helps the pan just glide the cake right
on out onto your cake pedestal with no
stickiness if you’re making a chocolate
bundt cake you can actually use cocoa
powder to line your pan instead for our
next tip once your bundt cake is out of
the oven as it’s cooling grab a flexible
silicone spatula like this this is just
a small offset spatula we want to be
sure to use a plastic one because that
will avoid scratching the nonstick
coating of our bundt pan and what you’re
going to do is just run this around the
edges of your bundt pan to help loosen
the cake now after you loosen the cake
what we’re going to do is
actually flip the cake onto a cooling
rack and let it cool upside down you
want to wait about five minutes after
the cake has come out of the oven to do
this and you want to be careful to avoid
burning yourself so use oven mitts now
when I’m cooling a bundt cake I prefer
to use a cooling rack like this one
which is gridded if you’re using a
cooling rack that has really big gaps in
between the wires then your bundt cake
can actually kind of get stuck in those
gaps and it can get stuck to the cooling
rack itself so that’s why I like to use
a great cooling rack like this one is
from OC’s oh and it just makes life so
much easier
so after the cake has been cooling
right-side up for five minutes then you
flipped it upside down let it cool that
way for five minutes then you can start
to release the cake and see if it’s
ready to come out nice and clean now if
it looks like it’s sticking move on to
my next tip however if it doesn’t then
you’re ready to go and you’ll have a
beautiful bundt cake which you can now
glaze and serve to your friends and
family if it did stick here’s a trick to
get your sticky bundt cake unstuck what
you can do is actually place a kitchen
towel at the bottom of your sink grab a
pot of boiling water or a kettle of
boiling water and pour it all over the
towel you want to get that towel soaked
in boiling water so it’s nice and steamy
pop your cake in the pan onto the towel
that steam is going to help release the
cake from the pan so it stops sticking
as a last resort if your cake really
doesn’t seem like it’s going to release
try putting it in the freezer until it’s
hardened and it should come out that way
all right so those are my tips for a
beautiful bundt cake that never sticks I
hope you found this helpful
if you did be sure to give it a thumbs
up if you have any other tips to share
leave them in the comments below I’d
love to hear from you be sure to
subscribe to my channel for more baking
videos every week thanks so much for
watching and I’ll see you next time

Bundt Pan Buyers’ Guide

What is a bundt pan?

A bundt pan refers to a piece of baking equipment which has fluted or grooved sides and a central tube or “chimney” which helps produce a cake with a cylindrical hole in the center of the cake and edges circling the exterior section. This design ensures that more of the mixture encounters the pan surface than in a simple round pan, so providing faster and even heat distribution during baking. When looking for a bundt pan, try to get one with a light-colored exterior and interior. Darker pans such as brown or black conduct heat better, and so they will surely over-brown your cakes or even burn them. The design a bundt pan produces on a cake is very unique and is impossible to achieve with any other pan.

How to get a cake out of a bundt pan?

Once your bundt cake is ready, carefully remove it from the oven and place it on a wire rack to cool. Leave it there for 15-20 minutes to allow the cake to become firm enough to remove from the bundt pan without cracking. Do not let it cool too long or it will make the cake damp and stick to the pan. Then, carefully slide a knife into the sides of the pan to release any stuck sections. Gently tap the pan a few times and shake it to help loosen the cake completely. Invert the pan by flipping it, lift the pan off and let the cake continue to cool on a plate or the rack.

How to grease a bundt pan?

There are two ways to grease a bundt pan to achieve the perfect cake. Ideally, you will have purchased a non-stick Bundt pan, but if you haven’t then don’t worry. To create your nonstick layer, mix fat (ideally oil or melted butter) and flour to create the perfect non-stick mixture and spread it inside the pan. The fat and flour bake with the cake, creating a protective barrier around it, guaranteeing easy cake release. Sugar can also be used to replace flour. Another method is to make a paste of equal parts flour and shortening and adding a few tablespoons of vegetable oil. Coat the pan and this will also ensure a non-stick layer and hassle-free release of the cake once it is done.
