How to keep mini Bundt cakes from sticking
Bundt cakes gets their name from the ring-shaped pan used to make them. The hole in the center of the pan ensures the cake turns out perfectly cooked all the way through. Plus, the Bundt’s fluted side guarantees they bake up beautifully so there’s no need for fancy frosting techniques like piping rosettes — a simple glaze drizzle and a little fresh fruit are all you need.
The one hitch? Since the molds are uneven on the inside, sometimes the cakes end up sticking in spots. That’s why First for Women test kitchen manager Susan Chiusano likes to mix equal parts melted butter and flour into a paste (she suggests starting with 1 Tbs. each). “Use a pastry brush to spread the paste onto the inside of the molds being sure to get it into the grooves,” she says. “It’ll form a crust as they bake so the cakes will slide out in one piece.”
