How do you keep a cake from sticking?

Use a non-stick pan without scratches and dents. Grease the pan thoroughly, Using a non-stick vegetable spray or melted shortening but not butter. (If the pan has crevices think bundt pan, you may need to use a pastry brush.)

Grease the pan just prior to adding the batter, because greasing a non-stick Bundt pan too far ahead of time allows the oil to slide down the inside of the pan and pool in the bottom.

As well, loosen the edges of the cake when you remove it from the oven.

Finally, let your cake rest for 10 minutes before removing it from the pan. It may drop right out, or you may need to gently shake it side-to-side to loosen it.

    Great flavor, but the pan size listed on recipe is way too small. It calls for a 9×9, and I used an 8×11 to make sure it didn’t run over the sides, but it did anyway and had to put a cookie sheet under it to protect the oven. Next time I’ll use a 9×13 cake pan. Also, I ended up overbaking a tad because the streusel appeared “wet”. I’ll watch it more carefully and not be fooled by the appearance next time. When following directions, I’m glad I noticed in the “Streusel” section it stated to spread this over the batter before baking; it’s not listed as such on the “Cake” section and I almost missed it. Also I added more cinnamon because I love it! Otherwise, great recipe!

    I made this tonight and it is excellent. It’s super moist and the streusel topping is very crunchy and plentiful! I usually double the amount of streusel topping to a cake because I love it so much, but I didn’t have to with this recipe.
    I had 1.5 C of pumpkin to use up so i put it all in there, and I didn’t have any heavy cream so I omitted. I tripled the amount of pumpkin pie spice because i like a spicy cake. Excellent recipe!

  4. I made this as instructed and the topping wasn’t nearly enough to top the cake as shown in the picture.

    Should the topping be doubled?

  5. I can’t wait to make this for church. Can this be made in a Bundt pan? Need to know as soon as possible. Thanks

    Yes please! I’ll start with a big piece and have a smaller second one. =) Thanks much for sharing with us at Weekend Potluck. I’m all about pumpkin this time of year too! =)
