I made this cake in a borrowed bundt pan (i.e., I'm not used to baking in it), which I greased with cooking spray. This was the result:
Not only did large sections stick to the pan and tear out upon removal, but there's that thick semi-burnt crust on the surface.
- The tear-out suggests that the pan wasn't greased properly, but I typically get pretty good coverage with that spray.
- The semi-burnt crust suggests that the oven was too hot, but, while I've never actually tested the oven, I've used it for years with no problems, so I'm pretty confident that it's accurate.
Does anyone have a thought as to what happened here?
