Obviously, I failed Home Ec.
This is an excerpt from an article by Kristen Fisher on Ehow:
Bundt pans Vs. Angel food pans
While the two cake pans look similar, they should not be used interchangeably. Bundt cake batter and angel food cake batter have different consistencies. Angel food cake batter is usually frothier; baking a Bundt cake in an angel food pan may cause the batter to leak out from the removable bottom.
One might think this should be fairly obvious. It’s not. I think this is why people call me “book smart.”
Here’s the full link, in case you are similarly challenged. Please note, although the article doesn’t specifically mention it, an angel food pan should also not be used for monkey bread. Ever.
P.S. I didn’t know what to do at that point – I mean, the house was already full of smoke, so….I decided to finish baking the monkey bread. I did not know this was even possible, but the burners on my stove actually filled with liquid and started smoking. My kids are yelling at me for taking pictures. I’m so glad my husband is not home.
P.P.S. Why is my smoke detector that goes off every time I make toast not going off when there is literally a black cloud over the whole kitchen and half the house?
P.P.P.S. Do you think the monkey bread is going to taste bad?
