I have a few amazing pound cake recipes, but I only know how to make them in a bundt pan. I've tried several times to make square cakes, but they're either unbaked in the center, or the whole cake is VERY dry.

I have a cake to do this weekend that's 12x12x3 and they'd like it to be pound cake. How do I bake it so that it is moist, but fully baked.

THANK YOU!!

Have you tried putting a flower nail or a heating core in the middle and surrounding the pan with baking strips? This guarantees even heat distribution so that the middle bakes just as quickly as the outside.

The tube portion of the bundt pan does assist the pound cake to rise and help the center bake (acts like heating core).

Here's a bundt pound cake recipe that required adjusting to a different cake pan:
