Marina and Cookie, I donít know either. Like Cookie, I have certain recipes that I only cook in the special tins. The cakes cooked in the Bundt tin are usually very big to get the full effect.
If I wanted to bake a recipe that I like, in a Bundt tin, I would start testing 10 minutes before the normal finish baking time. I write the results and note on the recipe. I also take a photo of the cake in the tin.
For bread, I put a slip of paper into the tin with instructions.

Cookie, thatís a shame. We noticed that they kept all the wine stalls together at the far end of the exhibition. Also everyone was given a plastic glass to use at water stations.
Today, Tai Chi, Book Club and GC for dinner.

Tonight I had TMX mushroom risotto with garlic prawns.
The dining room at the Royce was lovely. The food very good. Being a small hotel the service is excellent.

Washing and recovering from time in Melbourne. The Little Food Fair was fantastic. GD and I taste tested our way around all the stalls. The hand made butter was the most outstanding for us.

Cookie, would love to see it with the glaze.
I found a packet of Japanese bread mix in the pantry. It looked like it had a lot of rice flour in it. I added bread flour to make it up to 500 g. I mixed in bread machine and baked in oven. Result, a fine crumb loaf.
Made a nice salad sandwich.
