How to Remove a Bundt Cake from the Pan

Perfect results every time!

First, prep your pan!

Brush melted butter along the sides and center of the pan, making sure to get into every nook and cranny.

Then, sprinkle flour into the pan.

I sprinkle about 1-2 Tablespoons in the pan, then turn the pan on its side and tap the flour over all the melted butter.

It should look like this: Just enough flour to cover the pan, but not a very thick coating.

Pour your cake batter into the prepared Bundt pan and bake according to the recipe.

Once baked, allow the cake to cool for about half an hour while you prepare your topping (if any).

When cooling, the cake will begin to pull away from the edges of the Bundt pan.

Once you can see the gaps, you will be able to flip the cake out easily!


Place a wire rack or cutting board on top of the Bundt pan and a pot holder under it.

In one quick and smooth motion, flip the pan upside down, keeping a firm grip on the wire rack.

The cake will usually pop out on its own, but you can give the pan a few taps to help, too.

Then, remove the Bundt pan entirely and admire your work!

Here's a stop motion of the process:

Enjoy your Bundt cake as it was meant to be enjoyed—from a serving platter, not the inside of a pan! ;)
