Sour cream coffee cake problem

I made this delicious sour cream coffee cake. It requires a bundt pan to be "greased" so I sprayed it with "pam" . Next a topping of brown sugar and cinnamon go into pan then batter, then brown sugar and cinnamon then batter. After cooking and cooling I inverted on a dish. The topping stuck to the pan!

What can I do differently so it won't stick and look so awful........It still tastes great......I just wouldn't serve it to anyone besides my family.

Help! I will share recipe................I just need to know the "trick" to make it look better!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks

If it stuck that bad I'd use butter, alot of it.
Was it a dark "non-stick" pan? Sugary toppings will still stick, at least for me. Or over cook.
I've found with my caramel rolls to use glass or a silver "regular stick" :) pan. Dark seems too cook the outside much too fast for me.

I have a similar recipe that calls for a bundt pan, and I just bake the coffee cake in a 9X13 cake pan. It still looks good, and tastes even better!

Thats another good thought.
I've discovered my Bundt pan is really pretty useless......

Are you using a metal or teflon coated bundt pan?

instead of using pam i use butter. like when making a pineapple upside down cake inmy cast iron skillet. and it comes out great. you might be waiting to long when youinvert it. I havent made that recipe but I am going to now to see what happens, I havealways wanted to make that recipe.

i layer it opposite of what you listed. i also grease and flour the bundt pan. Layer batter, filling, batter, filling. Also, if you have this problem again, set pan in hot water for a few minutes, this will help release the contents.

Smile Thank you for your help

I was using a dark metal bundt pan.

I like the idea of using glass baking dish........but what would you suggest for the cooking time and temp? The original recipe calls for 350 for 1 hour.

So if I spray and put flour on it or just butter the pan I should be all set?

I was also wondering if it was my pan. It is not that thick. I have had it for years. Thought about getting a more heavy duty pan?



Thanks again for all your suggestions. I will definately come back to this forum. You have been all very helpful!!!!
