The great success of bundt pans is due to the fact that even the recipe you have been making all your life in a traditional pan changes completely the moment it takes on an elegant and beautiful shape, the shape of a bundt. cake; furthermore, without any added difficulty, just by changing the mould.

Many customers have already been encouraged to try making a bundt, the vast majority with very good results, thanks to the excellent quality of Nordic Ware molds . You often write to me commenting on how well it unmolds, how excited you are about it, how beautiful those cakes are with those beautiful shapes, and most of you add a phrase that I must admit I love to hear "So many good things I've heard from these molds...And it hasn't let me down at all! I love it!"

Precisely for this reason, I feel very bad when a customer has contacted us commenting that the mold did not unmold correctly. Sometimes the first bundt that has been made has been stuck, or in some other case it is the second cake that has not unmolded well. In all those cases we have solved it: making perfect bundts has a couple of considerations to take into account.

Why didn't my bundt unmold properly?

Given our experience with these molds, I wanted to pass on a few points to get the most out of them. I can say that, in my opinion, there are mainly three reasons why a bundt may not unmold correctly, namely:

- The inside of the mold has been scratched due to the use of a spoon or utensil that is not made of silicone or wood : it is important to take good care of the inside of the mold, because if you scratch the surface, the mold will lose its qualities

- The cake is not sufficiently baked: A classic Nordic Ware mold needs approximately 50-60 minutes of baking, depending on the oven and at a temperature of about 170-180ºC. If you bake less time than necessary, the cake will not unmold correctly. Better to bake a little more than less (it can help you to know that when it is already well done, you will usually notice that the dough is separated from the mold by a few millimeters on the sides).

- The use of oil or margarine to spread the pan : although it is common to use it in traditional pans, its use is not recommended in Nordic Ware bundt pans. The reason? They have more nooks and crannies, and if there are remains of oil or margarine in the mold, they burn in subsequent baking. That's when the dough sticks.

To make sure that when you unmold a cake you get the defined shapes that the different molds offer you, you must put butter and sprinkle flour, or use a release spray . Regarding the spray , I must say that it is very practical, and to resolve a recurring question, you should know that it leaves neither taste nor smell. Whether you use this or butter, make sure that all the indentations are well spread with the help of a brush .

If you have used oil or margarine, I recommend that you clean the mold very well with a sponge and soap and dry it with kitchen paper, thus ensuring that you take away any residue that may remain.

With all this said, there are other things you should keep in mind that are also important to ensure a perfect bundt:

- Pour the dough slowly in one place and let it fill the entire mold, to avoid air bubbles. Before putting it in the oven, let it fall a couple of times on a flat surface to settle the dough and expel possible air bubbles.

- When the cake is done, let it rest in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. No more, no less, but it will be too soft and it will break, or on the contrary it will be stuck.

- After this time, hit the mold lightly on the sides to help separate the cake. Leave it on a rack, upside down, to cool completely.

I hope all these points are clear. They are easy guidelines and surely many may think that they are common sense. And that's good, because it means that you will very easily get that perfect bundt cake!

La primera vez que lo usé fue perfecto. Luego he intentado 3 veces y siempre se pegó la torta a pesar de haber seguido rigurosamente las recomendaciones. Un desastre y gran decepción. Jamás me había pasado esto con un molde

Buauhhh!, lo hice el otro día con mi molde Bund Cake nuevo y me quedo espectacular de bueno, qué fácil desmoldarlo!,. No le puse la cobertura de chocolate, pero voló igual.
Ahora mismo tengo en el horno otro en el horno y que bien huele toda la casa, a este sí que le voy a poner el chocolate y las naranjas que ya he confitado. Sería chulo poder colgar las fotos de lo que hacemos.
Es súper fácil, grácias
