How to Make the Strawberry Swirl in a Cake

This cake isn’t 100% strawberry flavored. It’s marbled with a strawberry swirl. Don’t let that swirl worry you, it’s easy!

When you’re adding the batter to your bundt cake pan is when you make the strawberry swirl. You’ll hold back half of the batter in the bowl. The dollop in the strawberry glaze and give it a stir to marble it. Then top with the remaining cake batter.

Warming Eggs

Why use warmed eggs? You’re NOT really using warm or hot eggs in this cake we’re JUST bringing them to room temperature. Quickly. Warm eggs incorporate into a cake SO much easier than cold eggs that even just giving them a warm bath to hang out in while you cream the butter and sugar helps a lot!

How to get your Bundt Cake Out of the Pan

One of the reasons people get disappointed with their bundt cakes is that they STICK to the pan. It may have even driven some of us to swear off making a bundt cake. (AHEM!)

Strawberry pound cake no icing rigth out of the bundt cake pan.

BUT if you can get your hands on this Wilton Pan Release your cakes will slip right out. You can ALSO just be sure to grease your pan REALLY well and then flour it. The flour will show you where you missed any spots while greasing. Be sure to go back and grease those.
