Am making a fav Carrot cake recipe using a Bundt Pan for the first time ....I really want it to be unmoulded neatly like those picture perfect bundt cakes you see, esp since this is a gift.
Kindly tell me if there is anything else I need to know apart from these…thanks.
1) Grease the pan properly. Use a pastry brush or spray or a mister and make sure every nook and corner has been well greased. Two areas you need to focus on are the bottom of the pan which has the curves or design and where the tube meets the bottom.Melt it, paint it own with a brush, then flour the surface. (Do I need to melt the shortening?) I do not have veg spray.
2) About 2 minutes before your cake is ready to come out the oven, place a kitchen towel in the sink. Pour steaming water until its completely soaked. As soon as your cake is out of the oven place it on top of the towel and let it sit for 10 seconds.Immediately invert the cake onto a cooling rack. The cake will come out clean and whole without sticking.
Will point # 2 work, or shd I just leave them in the pans for 15 min.s and then unmould? Do revert to tell.
