The Art of Bundt Cake Making: 5 Tips to Make the Perfect Bundt Cake

The Art of Bundt Cake Making: 5 Tips to Make the Perfect Bundt Cake

For the novice baker, Bundt cakes are usually one of the most imposing cakes because they seem to be difficult and technical to do. You’ve probably skimmed over a Bundt recipe or two in your cookbooks and decided that it’s not the recipe for you.

Yes, making a Bundt cake does take a little bit more care and attention compared to other types of cake, but if you’re willing to put in a little bit of work, you’ll be rewarded with a cake that’s impossibly rich, moist, and fluffy.

Here are five tips to help you make the perfect Bundt cake.

Quality Matters

When making a Bundt cake, it will help immensely if you use quality branded ingredients instead of generic store brands. One example is with sugar. Store brand sugar often have smaller crystals compared to name brands, which means that you’ll be using more per cup. This can cause your cake to became dense and fall into the pan. Flour is another example: generic brands contain more hard wheat, which can cause the cake to become heavy.

Measure Precisely

One of the tenets you’ll often hear in baking is that you need to measure ingredients precisely, and when it comes to Bundt cake, this is a strict rule. Any extra ingredients will cause a change in the final texture, appearance, or even taste of the cake. More often than not, this change is not for the better.

Don’t Overmix The Ingredients

A fluffy and light Bundt cake is a happy one, while a dense and heavy Bundt cake is a sad one. If you want the light and fluffy version, don’t overmix the ingredients! When creaming your butter and sugar, keep an eye on your mixer while it is turned on. Once the mixture becomes light and thoroughly blended, turn off the mixer.

Tap the Pan

After adding the wet batter into the pan, make sure to tap the sides to release any air bubbles trapped inside the batter. You can also gently tap the pan on your kitchen counter surface to ensure that all bubbles are removed.

Patience is the Key

Finally, the key to a good Bundt cake is letting the cake bake completely then cool thoroughly. Don’t be tempted to keep opening the oven door to check for doneness, no matter how good it smells! Just follow the prescribed time in the recipe.

After baking, make sure to allow the cake to cool completely before taking it out of the cake pan. If you take it out too early, the cake will most likely crumble and break apart.

Conclusion

There you have it, five important tips that you need to keep in mind when making a Bundt cake. These tips will help you make a delicious, light, and moist Bundt cake that you can proudly bring to any get-together. You can also surprise your family with an amazing Bundt cake dessert at your next mealtime!
