Bundt pan

Can any cake be baked in a bundt pan?

Example - let's say I was making a rather plain-ole cake. Instead of baking in 2 9" rounds, could I bake it in a bundt pan for a more interesting presentation?

Obviously this would affect cooking temp/time.

    Definitely. 350 degrees for about 45 minutes give or take.

      I think the tube is designed to allow layer cakes to bake in a similar fashion without modifying the ingredients, just adjust the time a bit...

        on the back of most cake mix boxes you will see the info you need I know that
        duncan Hines has a graph on the back showing the different types of pans and the times
        to bake them. check it out and I think it will help you.

        Just make sure you butter and flour it and you should be okay.

          Thanks for all your suggestions!

          I will definitely grease properly - my first bundt cake was a big lesson on that one!
