How to prevent cake from sticking to the pan

Caramel Bundt Cake fresh from the oven
  • Line the bottoms of cake pans with parchment paper. You can trace and cut circles from sheets of parchment, or use pre-cut rounds.
  • Use a baking-specific nonstick spray that contains flour. (Look for Baker’s Joy at most grocery stores.)
  • Grease pan completely with butter, then dust with flour.
  • Use a nonstick pan. Dark nonstick pans can be tricky to bake with, but I do love to use them occasionally, such as with bundt cake.
