Mistake: Using the wrong type of cake pan
Pound cake recipes calling for a tube pan won’t always fit in a Bundt pan. (Tube pans have straight, high sides, while Bundt
pans are more shallow and fluted.) Although both may measure 10 inches in diameter, each holds a different amount of batter.
We also found that some 10-inch tube pans hold 12 cups of batter while others hold 14 or 16 cups. The same pound cake recipe
rises and bakes differently in each pan. When unsure of size, use a cup measure to fill the cake pan with water to determine
the pan's capacity.
