Some people may not quite understand the bundt cake design and why there is a hole in their cake, but bundt cakes have been wildly popular since the 1950s. Bundt cakes don’t share a common recipe, and are simply all about the common shape and design. Whether you’re a chocolate lover or not, we’re sure you’re going to love the most amazing chocolate bundt cake.
Greasing Your Pans:
You want to be sure to thoroughly grease and flour your bundt cake pans. With all of those ridges and designs, you’d be amazed at how easily batter sticks to the sides! Another popular option amongst home bakers is to use a homemade “miracle” pan release that is a mixture of flour, vegetable oil, and shortening that is then painted onto the bundt cake pan using a brush.
Bundt pan sizes:
Bundt pans come in all different sizes and designs, so be sure to pay attention to the cup measurement on your pan. Don’t know what size your bundt pan is? Use a liquid measuring cup to fill it to the top with water, measuring as you go. Once it reaches the point that it is just about to overflow, you’ll know what size your bundt pan is. When making a bundt cake, you want to fill the pan about 2/3rds of the way full. This recipe is designed for a 10-12 cup bundt cake pan and makes 8 cups of chocolate cake batter.
Oven Variations in Baking:
This recipe should take between 45-50 minutes to bake in the oven. However, the cake’s doneness is more important than how long it has been baking in the oven. All ovens vary a bit from each other, running either hot or cold, fanned or not. It is best to see recipe instructions as a guide for an approximation of baking time, but don’t worry if your cake is ready sooner or if it needs a few more minutes. You want to bake your chocolate bundt cake until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. For a truly accurate baking experience, we highly recommend an oven thermometer.
