Properly Grease the Pan

This zesty cake combines the tartness of lemon with the delightful crunch of poppy seeds. Perfect for a light, refreshing dessert.

Flour the Pan

After greasing, lightly flour the pan. This extra step helps the cake release smoothly and maintains its beautiful shape.

Use Room Temperature

Ingredients at room temperature blend more easily and evenly. Take your eggs, butter, and other dairy products out of the fridge ahead of time.

Don’t Overmix the Batter

Overmixing can lead to a dense cake. Mix until the ingredients are just combined to keep the cake light and airy.

Fill the Pan Correctly

Fill your Bundt pan no more than two-thirds full to avoid overflow. This leaves room for the cake to rise properly.

Remove Air Bubbles

Gently tap the filled pan on the counter a few times to release any trapped air bubbles, ensuring a smooth, even cake.

Bake on Middle Rack

Place your Bundt pan in the center of the oven to ensure even baking. This helps the cake cook evenly and prevents burning.

Check for Doneness

Insert a toothpick into the cake to check for doneness. If it comes out clean or with a few crumbs, the cake is ready.

Cool in the Pan

Let the cake cool in the pan for about 10-15 minutes before turning it out. This helps it set and reduces the chance of breaking.

Store Properly

Keep your Bundt cake moist by storing it in an airtight container at room temperature. This keeps it fresh and delicious for days.
