If you’ve ever experienced the panic of having a perfectly designed bundt cake get stuck to the pan, this one’s for you! And if not, this one is also for you! There’s nothing worse than getting to the final hurdle in the process of baking your bundt cake masterpiece and discovering it’s stuck. My best answer for this is to steam it right out of there.
First, boil a kettle of water and carefully pour some of it over a clean kitchen towel. Then drape the towel over the top of your bundt pan and leave it there for about 20 minutes or until the pan has cooled down enough to handle. The trick here is that the combination of the warm pan and moisture from the towel will create steam, which will release the cake from the pan once its inverted! Phew!
