HOW TO KEEP A BUNDT CAKE FROM STICKING TO A PAN?

One of the most important things you can do to avoid a cake from sticking to a pan is to thoroughly grease and flour it. Even if the recipe only calls for greasing, you should still use flour as well. This ensures that your cake will easily come out of the pan in one piece! If you don’t want to flour the pan, then I recommend using a baking spray instead of just cooking spray.

HOW LONG DOES A BUNDT CAKE NEED TO COOL?

It’s best to let bundt cakes cool in the pan for around 10 minutes before removing it from the pan. Once you remove it from the pan, I recommend allowing it to cool for two hours before adding the glaze to the top.

Maple Walnut Bundt Cake

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes

This Maple Walnut Bundt Cake is insanely delicious and perfect for your family. It's moist, flavorful, and the most delicious comfort food dessert!

Ingredients

  • ½ cup salted butter softened
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 cups white flour
  • 1 ¼ cup chopped walnuts
  • For the glaze:
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp whole milk
  • 3 Tbsp pure maple syrup

Instructions

  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and coating a 10-inch Bundt pan in butter and flour.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together your butter and sugar until the ingredients are homogenous, and no pockets of sugar remain (about 2 minutes).
  3. Add in the Greek yogurt, maple syrup, and large eggs. Stir the ingredients vigorously until the added ingredients are fully incorporated into the mixture.
  4. Add the flour and slowly fold it into the batter being careful not to overmix.
  5. Once the flour is just barely incorporated, add the chopped walnuts and fold them into the batter gently until they are evenly distributed throughout the mixture.
  6. Pour the batter into the Bundt pan and bake for 45 minutes.
  7. Allow the cake to cool before removing it from the pan while you prepare the maple glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar, milk, and syrup until it reaches a smooth consistency.
  8. Remove the cake from the pan, pour the glaze over the cake, serve, and enjoy!

Notes

  • If you do not have pure maple syrup, you can use any kind of accessible syrup. 
  • If you do not have Greek yogurt, you can use sour cream instead.
  • It is important to chop the pecans to ensure they do not sink to the bottom of the batter while the cake is baking.
  • This cake can be stored for about 5 days on the counter/ in the fridge when sealed in an airtight container. You can also store this cake in the freezer for up to two months.
  • This cake is best served warm and can also be served with a drizzle of warm maple syrup if you are not making a glaze.
  • When coating the pan, it helps to soften the butter and combine it with flour to form a sludgy mixture. I have found that this helps the cake slide out of the pan perfectly every time.
  • The walnuts can be replaced with almonds or pecans. This cake also tastes great topped with whatever nuts you choose to use in the batter.
