Let me start this post with a disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post and I genuinely recommend the Nordic Ware bundt tin after trying and testing it.
If you are one of those people who take your baking seriously then I suggest get your hands on Nordicware bundt tins and these tins are a delight to have in your baking equipment collection they come in different shapes that automatically makes your cakes look really pretty
These Nordic ware bundt tins are made from cast aluminium due to which the tin heats up evenly in the oven giving your cakes that gorgeous crust on the outside and soft & fluffy in the inside.
Let me tell you these tins are by no means cheap but they definitely are a one-time investment if you take good care of them they will last forever. I got my tin from London but just in case you are considering purchasing one this is the Amazon link https://www.amazon.in/Nordic-Ware-Platinum-Collection-Heritage/dp/B0021CEREA/ref=sr_1_5?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1544602830&sr=1-5&keywords=nordic+ware+bundt+cake
The only drawback which I found with these tins is you have really take care when you are lining your cake tin because if they have not been lined properly disaster strikes and you will find your cake stuck to the tin which is not a pretty sight at all.
After a bit of trial and testing, I came up with a perfect solution for this problem this homemade pan release paste works perfectly every time. Make 1:1:1 ratio that is one part flour one part margarine and one part veg oil and mix all three thoroughly after that using a natural bristled pastry brush apply this mixture evenly in every nook and cranny of the pan (please don’t use the silicone brush it doesn’t work) and to be doubly sure I give a good coating of flour but if you are making chocolate bundt cake then it’s a good idea to use Cocoa powder instead of flour for the final coating.
I know It looks like a lot of work but believe me when you see all your hard work going down the drain with the parts of the cake getting stuck to the pan while demoulding, you will happily comply with this extra step. You do get the silicone bundt tin as well https://www.amazon.in/Spiral-Silicone-Fluted-Bakery-Bakeware/dp/B077FXBN6S/ref=sr_1_1?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1544603375&sr=1-1&keywords=silicone+bundt+tin these are cheaper plus they are easy to demould but I wasn’t very happy with the end product, you do get the shape but because its silicone the crust is not there and cake just tasted too moist for my liking but if you are the one who doesn’t want to do all the tham jaam of greasing the pan then go for this cheaper option.
Enough about the virtues of this pan lets start baking. I had some bananas lying around and who can ever say no to this classic and wholesome banana walnut bundt cake. A hot cuppa tea and a big slice of banana walnut cake is all I need

Tip of the day
Follow the greasing of the cake tin procedure as mentioned in the description above.
Once you turn the bundt tin upside down to demould the cake. It’s a good idea to cover the mould with a wet cloth this makes it easier for the cake to de-mould.
