Nordic Ware Platinum Collection Bundt Pans
Prepare the Pan
Using a pastry brush, grease the pan thoroughly with solid shortening and dust with flour. Or, use a baking spray that does not contain lecithin. Be sure to coat all the crevices in the pan so the cake will release easily and the design will be sharply defined.
Filling the Pan
Spoon the batter into the pan slowly to prevent the formation of air bubbles. Tap the pan 3 times gently on a work surface to release any bubbles that may have developed and ensure the batter reaches all crevices in the design. Using a rubber or silicone spatula, spread the batter so the sides are slightly higher than the center. The cake will bake more evenly and be less likely to form peaks.
Baking the Cake
Bake in a pre-heated oven for the time indicated on the recipe.
Removing the Cake from the Pan
Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let the cake cool upright in the pan for 10 minutes. Then tap the pan firmly a few times and shake it gently to help loosen the cake. Invert the pan onto a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.
A simple glaze or dusting of powdered sugar will show off the details of the cake design.
How It's Made
Our beloved Bundts are produced with lots of hand touch and care, ensuring that they will last for a lifetime. We've perfected this process over the past seven decades--there is a lot of science behind created the best Bundts on earth! At the die casting facility, molten aluminum at temperatures of over 1200 degrees F is ladled into a chamber where an arm rapidly pushes the liquid aluminum into the die (mold). This takes place in a fraction of a second, and the aluminum solidifies as it hits the cooler mold. The two halves of the mold open up, releasing a very hot but solid aluminum Bundt pan.
The pans have razor sharp 'flash', or left over aluminum, that is protruding from the perimeter of each pan. The flash is trimmed to a rough perimeter before the pans are sent to our main processing facility. There, they undergo a series of secondary finishing processes, including vibratory deburring in a chamber of ceramic pebble, shot blasting with stainless media to 'roughen' the parts, and a perimeter routing in a CNC machine to smooth the edges and trim out handles. Next, they are thoroughly washed, and then sent to coatings to be sprayed and cured with PFOA-free premium nonstick. By the time a Bundt pan has left our factory, it has been touched by nearly two dozen sets of hands, ensure that you're receiving the best Bundt pan in the world.

Knowing your oven and your cake pans is obviously important when baking. I needed to increase the temperature on my oven by 10 degrees compared to a regular cake tin because this pan is a pretty large and heavy chunk of metal. It's also simultaneously deeper and shallower than a regular bundt of the same capacity because of the peaks of the cathedral. This makes the centers quite moist, so use your cake tester in line with the thickest part of the cake.
This pan serves 8 or 16 (depending on whether each person wants a whole cathedral or half a cathedral). It is difficult to make further smaller cuts because the shape is so irregular.
The cakes that come out of this pan are visually stunning, and lend themselves to only mild decoration (drizzled icing or powdered sugar sprinkles).
I noticed one of the reviews suggests you can only use this pan for religious events, because of the Cathedral design. I believe that reviewer had only used the cake pan three times. If you are giving all your cakes as gifts, that might be correct, but if you are baking cakes to be consumed by your family, I can't see that would be a problem, just serve the cake on Sundays. Let's see, there are 52 Sundays in a year, looks to me like you would get plenty of use out of this pan, even if it has a Cathedral design.
If having Cathedrals on your cake bothers you, think of them as town houses,,,lol.
Otherwise, it is solid and sturdy. We do place a small sheet under the pan in the oven to keep it from tipping.
