Mini Bundt Cake FAQs
How do you get a mini bundt cake out of the pan?
To easily get your bundt cakes out of the silicone pan, you definitely want to make sure you’ve properly greased the cake pan before pouring in the batter. I like a non-stick baking spray with flour in it. I find that it ups the chance of getting my bundt cakes out of the pan in one piece.
If you forgot to prep your mini bundt cake pan or your cakes still aren’t coming out easily, try to firmly bang the pan down on the counter (face up). The force is often enough to knock the cake out.
If you find that you’re still struggling, you can grab a dish towel and get it wet with very hot water (Wring it out well, making sure it’s not soaking or dripping wet). Then lay the dish towel over the bundt pan for a few minutes. The steam from the hot towel should help loosen the cake from the pan.
How long are mini bundt cakes good for?
You can store the cooled cakes in the fridge for up to 5 days, but I’m sure these won’t likely be left alone that long!
Do you flip a bundt cake right away?
Not ideally. You should try to let the cake cool for about 10 minutes in the pan before trying to remove it. Once it’s removed, let it cool completely before decorating.
