The beauty of a bundt cake is that you don't need an intricate design to have a lovely looking cake. It can be just a plain old tube pan. You can make almost any cake recipe into a bundt cake including pound cake, carrot cake, zucchini bread, chocolate cake, the list is endless. Because of the hole in the middle, it bakes evenly without much worry the center will be underdone.
It's about the easiest cake you can make.

After reading the above posts I am thinking maybe I should give them a try.
Use the baking sprays that have grease and flour in them. The Pam brand has a picture of a Bundt cake on it. I always let the pan soak for a while, then it cleans up pretty easily.

If I made bundt cakes more often, I'd get a crown or a jubilee or a crystal pan as I bet they make beautiful cakes. I'd have a hard time choosing. But, since I only make 1 once every year or so...

Nothing sacred about the recipe, it’s all over the ‘net, and for good reason. Super easy and ridiculously delicious.

I wanted to add, that just because you see stories of failure does not mean it’s a difficult thing. It usually means the person did something stupid and did not follow directions. It’s seriously easy. But there will always be people that can’t seem to make anything to save their life. Some people should never get near a kitchen LOL.

So, I wanted to try this before getting more deeply involved with the "Chocolate ring of coconut fudge bundt cake" also in this forum. I went to the market and first hurdle, the recipe calls for an 18oz box cake mix and most of the ones I saw were 15.25 oz, Brownie mixes were 18+ but I don't know how they differ from cake mix. I hate to make substitutions the first time I try something as if it comes out bleah! I have no way of telling if it's the recipe or the ingredient substitution. A 15% deviation from the called for amount seems significant, and I'm a lot more familiar with cooking than baking.

Hints, tips, tales from experience appreciated.

I would bet if you made a bundt cake from a brownie mix you could use it for a boat anchor. JMHO.

This explains what happened and what to do, just substitute Devil's food for yellow cake mix.

Thanks for this! I've been cooking a long time and can usually figure out what I need to do, sampling as I go along but baking is still a bit of a mystery to me as you mix things up and have no chance to sample until it comes out of the oven.

Looking forward to trying your cake recipe too, stopped at Goodwill yesterday and found a like-new heavy Farberware Bundt pan for $3.98.
