    Sub for Tube/ Bundt pan?

    This week I want to bake a brunch-like cake that calls to be baked in a 10 inch tube or Bundt pan. I have neither, assuming they are not the same thing. This is just for us, so I'm not that worried about presentation. Would a couple of loaf pans make the best substitute? I also have small round cake pans (8 x 2?) and the long rectangular 9 x 13 pans (both metal and Pyrex).

    TIA

    The 9 by 13 pans would probably be your best substitutes. Remember if you use the pyrex pan to lower the oven temperature by 25 degrees.

    Either the 2 round and the qrtr sheet pan(9x13) will do though you will have to adjust baking time but I wouldn't worry about the temp if using pyrex since most cakes are baked at 350F and I've never adjusted for temp.

    Ok, thanks. Just out of curiosity though, why not the loaf pans? I thought a loaf shape would be more consistent with a Bundt pan than the shallower pans?

    The loaf pans would probably work just fine but you didn't mention the size of the loaf pans.
