bundt



bundt, originally uploaded by super eggplant.

I came up with a new job idea: bundt pan cleaner. You can go from house to house and charge $5 per bundt pan. I think it is a winner of an idea, because I would certainly pay someone $5 to clean and wash a bundt pan.

I had some leftover buttermilk in the fridge, so I dug through my recipes and found this one from Joy the Baker. It has buttermilk and coffee and a pretty serious glaze (I don’t believe in cakes that don’t have frosting or icing or serious glaze), so I was all over it.

It is good. I recommend it. Some comments:
– I buttered the living daylights out of the bundt pan. I have had past issues with bundt pan stickage, and I did not want to repeat that
– Use a LARGE bowl for mixing the glaze. The bowl I used was not quite large enough, and as a result I had powdered sugar and coffee flying all over the kitchen

    You have bundt sticking issues? Get that Baking Pam (that’s not a person that’s a product) in your life and you should be good. There’s some scrubbing to be done post-bake, but soaking takes most of that out of your hands. Either that, or I will take $5 out of your hands.
    Happy Peep Season.

    That bundt is making my mouth water. I love the robin eggs in the center. I use baking Pam and a good soak to clean my bundt pan. Have you ever tried the silicon bundt pan? I have not… but have friends who swear by it. I wonder how that is to clean?

    Thanks for posting this – I’ve been wanting to bake something yummy just for the hell of it and I have buttermilk to use up too. My coworkers will appreciate this too!

    Bakers Grease –
    equal parts
    Crisco (plain)
    white flour
    vegetable oil (canola is fine)
    blend together. keep in fridge. works GREAT on bundt pans and ANY baking pan, really.

      I needed to leave more instructions! This is for prepping the pan, not for cleaning baked-on cake! Sorry! Paint the mixture onto your pan with a brush before you pour in the batter. You should never have another problem with hard-to-clean bundt pans. :-)

    I would say that this cake looks awesome but I am still too envious of the Nani Iro t-shirt to leave a complimentary comment. Maybe next time.

    Oh yum! I don’t have a problem washing my bundt pan, but maybe I’m just lucky? (and I am the frosting queen, so I could so eat that glaze by the spoonful.)

  9. you made me laugh and drool at the same time.
    thank you.
    i got a new pen…it says “jetstream”…. (0.7) there, did I make you drool???

    This was seriously the best cake ever. I will come clean out the pan for you if you will make this cake for me!

    hysterical…and you are hired. What time can you be here?

  12. I searched Google for bundt and I found your blog :-) I like your blog, well done!

    Yum!! As for buttering the bundt pan, I’ve found that melting the butter and using a pastry brush to get it in all the nooks and crannies works really well and it gives it a thicker layer of butter. Another bonus is clean hands.
