Can a carrot cake recipe be baked in a bundt pan? My recipe for it is very moist and I've just always made it in a 9x13, but I would like to try it, any suggestions?
Be very careful!
Since carrot cake is so darn moist it sticks in those crevices like crazy! I always have the worst luck no matter how well I grease or grease/flour the pan, plus too much and you get that icky layer of floury grease...
If your bundt pan is newer and well coated you will have better luck I bet, than me and my antique pans...
I do like making it in a tube pan though, and then making some fun decoration (like carrot tops) for the center hole.
It CAN be done though, I am sure!
Thank you. I've been wondering if it would just fall apart when it came out. I might make a back up cake just in case.
One trick that might help is lower your oven rack slightly -- maybe one notch down. This puts the bundt pan closer to the heat source, and allows a nice crust to form that will come out of the pan easily, but it won't be dry because a bundt cake retains a lot of moisture.
Hope this helps.
