Easy Angel Food Cake baked right in a bundt pan (in case you don’t have a tube pan). Incredibly fluffy, airy and delicious Just the way classic Angel Food Cake should be!
Many people say you can’t make an angel food cake in a bundt cake pan. But I have found that not to be true.
It might not turn out exactly the same but the texture and the taste are identical to any angel food cake I’ve ever made in my own tube pan.
My foray into trying it with a bundt pan stemmed from needing an angel food cake for an event. Somehow in our move, my angel food cake pan went missing and I couldn’t find it anywhere. I mean where does an angel food pan go?
Honestly it’s probably just in our storage unit but I couldn’t find it when I needed it and I didn’t have time to go shop for one.
So I ordered one on amazon to replace the missing one, and had to wait for it to arrive.
But I couldn’t wait to make this angel food cake, so I set out to try making it in a bundt pan, which I have several of.
I literally researched the heck out of it.
I read every person’s account of making an angel food cake in a bundt pan and was quite surprised at how many people said they had never made one in a traditional angel food cake pan. That’s the only way I’d ever made one until I couldn’t find mine.
So I got a bit excited and gave it a shot.
Since many were saying it could be done, I set out to try it.
The one thing I read was that it needed to be a non-stick bundt pan. The problem is, I didn’t have a non-stick bundt pan. Six bundt pans and not one was non-stick. So that caused me some concern, but I was still determined to try it.
I found the bundt pan that had the least amount of crevices and intricate details and went with that. From what I read, that was the only thing I needed to really watch for.
However, since then, I’ve done it. Sometimes the cake sticks a little bit but honestly the cake still looks beautiful served with sauce poured over, or even glazed.
The angel food cake recipe I used was the same one I’ve used since I learned how to bake, so I know it’s a good one. I’m pretty sure it is a very old Betty Crocker Angel Food Cake recipe. But it’s tried and true and super simple. Easy Angel Food Cake for the win!
Guess what? It worked! Like a charm. It wasn’t difficult, or hard – I did have to run a knife around the edges but other than that, as you can see from the photo, it’s perfect.
