Unmolding your chocolate bundt cake
I can't tell you how many times I've had bundt cakes stick and break when trying to remove them from. It feels like no matter how much I grease them, it always still sticks. However, over the years, I have collected some tricks that can help. Here are a few tips for getting your bundt cake to pop out of the pan perfectly every single time.
• Use Baker's Joy baking spray or a similar product. Sometimes, just greasing a pan with a little butter or oil just doesn't cut it. Sprays like Baker's Joy are a mix of oil/butter and flour. This combination is almost foolproof when it comes to unmolding a bundt cake.
• Don't let your bundt cake cool completely in the pan. It is best to let your bundt cake cool in the pan for just 5-10 minutes after removing it from the oven. Take a rubber spatula and carefully run it along the edges of the cake, gently pulling it away from the pan (be sure to do that with the center, too!). Place a cooling rack on top of the pan, and flip it over to turn the cake out onto the cooling rack.
Serving chocolate bundt cake
Now, you can definitely eat this bundt cake as is, and it will be absolutely delicious. If you want to spruce it up a little bit. you can dust with powdered sugar or make a simple chocolate ganache to drizzle over the top before serving!
