How do I get my bundt cake to not stick to the pan?
Sometimes it’s hard to get the cake out of the pan without it breaking especially if you are using an intricate pan design. The thing I’ve found that helps my cake come out every time is Pan Release. I Am Baker has a great recipe.
Also many recipes say to cool for 10 or 15 minutes and then flip. However, I haven’t found that to work for me. I allow it to cool completely before flipping.
