Best mini bundt cake pan
There are SO many options when it comes to picking a mini bundt cake pan. One thing to consider is the capacity of the pan. Most pans will have a 3.5 to 4 cup capacity. I like cast aluminum cake pans because they are durable, won't rust, and release food quickly.
I own both the Nordic Ware Heritage Bundtlette and the Wilton Mini Fluted Cake Pan. These are two quality pans that will set you up for success!
Mini bundt cake tips
When preparing mini bundt cakes, there are a few things you should keep in mind to make sure they come out moist and delicious every time.
- Only fill your mini bundt pan wells ⅔ to ¾ full to allow room for your cakes to rise.
- Most cake recipes will work fine in your mini bundt pan. However, cakes that are heavy and dense will show more detail than light and fluffy cakes. For example, pound cakes will show nice detail.
- When finished baking, leave the mini cakes in the pan to cool for only 20 minutes, then loosen around the edges and invert the pan onto a cooling rack.
Following these tips will ensure your mini cakes will come out perfect every time! Now onto those recipes!
