I have a friend who GAVE me the Bavaria Pan.

Lucky!  I love the Bavaria, too. When I bought my Fleur de Lis, I had a hard time deciding between the two.

Here’s a sample 6-cup kugelhopf;

They come in a lot of designs, but I have never tried to bake a bundt cake in mine. Wonder how the taller, narrower shape would affect baking—perhaps a little less time?

Lovely Jenn.  Seriously, if they weren’t so darn bulky, I’d have a lot more of them!

Patrincia - you mean you can’t find a space in that wonderful huge pantry of yours? smile.
Julie - the 1st thing I will make would be the Pumpkin Cake with Burnt Orange Buttercream for the RHC bake-a-long. I think I will do it on the 31st - so it would also make it to this forum’s bake off! I’m so excited. I already washed the pan and hand-dried it LOL. I couldn’t stop looking at it last night, it’s so pretty!

To save any disappointment when you turn out your cake, Jenn, make sure you lubricate the tin really well before putting in your mixture!  My first attempt at a Bundt cake ended in frustration because some of the mixture stayed in the tin, so the second time I used it, for this month’s bake-off. I made sure I got into every crevice and also floured the tin as well.  It turned out perfectly,  I was well pleased! grin

I’m like that too when I first get a new pan. Glad to know I’m not the only one wink

been researching several types of baking spray with flour, do you all use Baker’s Joy?  seems to be the absolutely best!  plus be sure to use a brush to reach the smaller convolutions, specially on the more detailed pans.  we all want to get the perfect bundts as seen on RHC.

apparently, you don’t need much of it, but just an ‘invisible’ layer.  if you have too thick of a layer or “white” film, then it is too much and will affect the shape on the sharper edges.

another baking spray i have tried with success is Bak-klene.

besides that, my mother always said to never wash a pan before using it, best to just wipe it with a paper towel if you find your pan dirty.  this has been a rule of thumb in all my baking, including layer cakes.

hope you all can find Baker’s Joy in your area, it is widely sold across the nation, except in Hawaii!!!!!!!!!  so i am having a case boat in, it really never expires.

Is there a trick to spray it to get a thin layer? It seems whenever I spray it I get the white layer.

it is normal to get the white layer, just brush it off, or spray less.

Nope, I’m using the new pantry for food only.  I need to figure out how to best transform and organize the old pantry into a pot/pan storage closet.  Maybe then smile.
