There’s little more frustrating than trying to unmold a cake and having it stick and crumble into an unappetizing mess. When working with standard round and square cake pans, this unfortunate occurrence can be easily avoided by using parchment liners and vegetable oil spray. Bundt pans, however, with their plethora of crevices and curves, prove significantly more challenging. Our preferred method is to coat a nonstick Bundt pan thoroughly with baking spray, which contains both oil and flour. For those who don’t have baking spray, we recommend applying a paste of melted butter and flour. Using melted butter instead of more common softened butter makes for a thinner paste that can be easily applied to every nook and cranny using a pastry brush.

1. Make paste with 1 tablespoon flour and 1 tablespoon melted butter.

2. Use pastry brush to apply to pan.
