Ever since I was a small child, I’ve had quite a generous sweet tooth. From fluffy donuts to homemade cakes, my palate has become quite picky. So when I say this is one of the best cakes – I mean it. Our Chocolate Chip Olive Oil Bundt Cake is moist, light, and encompasses all parts deliciousness!
When baking bundt cakes, my biggest fear is making sure they come out of their pans almost perfectly every time. Anyone with me? Check out a few tips below!
TIP: If I have one recommendation, it would be to use mini chocolate chips (or even regular chocolate chips) rather than chocolate chunks (like I did lol). By using mini chocolate chips, the cake batter will rise evenly and bake perfectly.
After trial-and-error, here are 3 Ways to Remove Your Bundt Cake:
First – Grease the entire bundt cake pan with olive oil or butter (especially all the crevices). Then, lightly dust the pan with flour (knocking off any extra flour). DO THIS JUST BEFORE POURING YOUR BATTER INTO THE CAKE PAN.
- Allow the bundt cake to cool for 10 minutes. Then, gently scrap the very top of the bundt cake sides. Then, turn the bundt cake (in the pan) upside down and tap the bottom of the pan until it falls out.
- If that doesn’t work – then place a kitchen towel in your sink. Pour 3-4 cups of boiling water over the kitchen towel, then quickly place the bundt cake on top of the kitchen top (so the bottom of the pan is touching the towel). Allow it to sit for 5 minutes, then try tapping it out again.
- Finally – you can try placing the bundt cake in its pan in the freezer for 5-10 minutes, then retry tapping the bottom until it falls out.
Now, it’s time to grab our aprons and start baking absolute scrumptiousness!

For the Almond-Vanilla Glaze:
