Bundt cakes are never going out of style, and their interesting shape is one of the first things you’ll notice about them. The journey of baking a perfectly delicious Bundt cake starts with picking the right pan for the occasion, and these three tips will help you make the best possible choice.

Pan Material

When it comes to materials, you’ll most likely be choosing between pans made from silicone and metal. Silicone can be a good choice for all sorts of different desserts, but it’s not commonly used for Bundt cakes because they tend to stick to the mold, so it’s much better to go with metal instead.

Right Size

Pans for Bundt cakes usually have 12-cup and 10-cup capacity, and It’s extremely important to pick the size that suits your recipe. Your cake won’t bake properly if you’re using too much or too little batter and you’ll make a huge mess by making either one of these mistakes.

Prep Your Pan

Even after picking the right mold, you can still make a huge mistake by missing one important step—prepping your pan. You should always grease your pan beforehand, and it’s highly recommended to use a pastry brush for this task so your oil or melted butter would cover the full surface of the pan.
