Half a Bundt pan -- baking time?

KansasKate Mar 10, 2011 01:41 PM

I searched but couldn't find this in the archives.

When using the 6-cup (half size) Bundt pan, should the baking time be reduced? Our recipes, which are for 10 or 12-cup pans, call for 45-50 mins at 350°F.

    If you used half a Bundt pan wouln't the batter run out the ends?

      Nah. Used the bottom half.

      A 6 cup bundt pan typically bakes for 35-40 minutes but watch it closely. I would err on the short side, at about 30 minutes for the first test. When in doubt, test early and (as I'm sure you already know) whenl a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean (but not dry) it's done.

        Thanks! 32 mins and it was perfect. Good thing, since it's my birthday cake! My husband made it last night so I could have cake for breakfast. How great is that!
