Test Kitchen editors--as I received this in my newsletter for best bundt pan recipes.....can you please advise for cooking times for bundt pan lovers? thanks

Hello everyone! The Mr. Food Test Kitchen has not tried this pound cake in a bundt pan, but our chefs think it should work just fine! Bundt cakes generally take about 1 1/2 hours at 300 degrees, and the measurements should be the same. Enjoy!

Can you bake this cake in a bundt pan,if so do you use the same measurements

would white whole wheat flour completely ruin this as a pound cake, just curious as I use it in recipies in my bread machine.

Hey Renee! Here at the Mr. Food Test Kitchen we aren't sure how white whole wheat flour will work. Maybe you could try using half of each flour and see how it comes out?

How long would you have to bake this if you made 4 mini loafes?

This sounds sooooooo good.. think I'lll increase peanut butter extra 1/4 cup and add 1 t vanilla. I 'll bet some chocolate chips coated first in the flour then added last would bring this pound cake over the top Really like all the wonderful yet slightly ideas on this site Thank you Mr. food Staff!

How many loaf pans do I need to prepare fot this?

This recipe calls for TWO 9- x 5-inch loaf pans, as mentioned in Step 1. Thank you!

I, too would like to see calorie and nutrition information for all recipes. Will you please consider this for the very near future?

I dont think you want to know, if your watching calories, then this isnt a recipe for you.

Chef 14592- Thanks for your question. There are no missing ingredients. The 6 eggs, added one at a time, give the cake it's rising power. Keep in mind that it is a pound cake, and it has a dense texture. Enjoy!

i would like to try this Peanut Butter Pound Cake but my Husband is Diabetic could I use splenda and how much?

Yes you can use splenda instead of sugar. You can use Splenda in any sugar conversion as "1 for 1" equally.

Isn't there an ingredient missing? Should there be some baking soda or baking powder to make the cake rise?

I would like to know if there is a place to see the calories and nutrition on the recipes?

I dont think you want to know, if your watching calories, then this isnt a recipe for you.
