How do You Know When a Bundt Cake is Done Baking?

This is always a bit tricky – but I always use 3 methods:

  • Insert a toothpick or cake tester. It should come out clean or with a few moist crumbs.
  • Gently press on the top of the cake – it should feel slightly firm/ springy to the touch and you shouldn’t be able to make an indent.
  • Look at the sides of the cake. They should be starting to pull away from the edges.

This cake will bake for 30-40 minutes. **Note that even oven bake times can vary by 10-15%** When in doubt – bake the cake for a few more minutes. This cake is very moist so the chances of it drying out are slim/non-existent. If your bundt cake is gummy or starts to sink – that means it wasn’t baked for long enough.
