Can You Make Banana Bread In a Bundt Pan?

Yes, you can definitely make Banana Bread in a bundt pan. If you use a 10-inch bundt pan it will take more time to bake and twice the batter compared to banana bread made in a loaf pan.

A bundt pan is a pan with fluted or grooved sides and it mostly has a central tube that leaves a hole in the center of a cake.

The Ingredients

Here are some notes on key ingredients:

Bananas: Start with overripe bananas if you can find them but if your bananas are just ripe and not overripe you could still use them.

Sugar: This recipe doesn’t call for lots of sugar because the bananas already add sweetness to the cake.

Milk: Use whole milk, 2 percent milk, or buttermilk.

Recipe FAQs

Can I use a bundt pan instead of a bread pan?

Yes, you can use a bundt pan instead of a bread pan. If a recipe calls for a 9 by 5-inch bread pan, you’ll need to double the recipe to fit a standard 10-inch bundt pan. However, you could use a smaller 6-cup bundt pan.

What is the best thing to use to grease a bundt pan?

Grease a bundt pan with butter then coat the pan with flour. This ensures that the cake releases from the pan easily.

Can you use cooking spray to grease a bundt pan?

Yes, you can use cooking spray to grease a bundt pan. However, using butter is better as it will equally add flavor to the cake.

  • Serve the cake as it or let it cool completely then spread the cream cheese frosting on top before serving.

Cream Cheese Frosting
