Why did my Raspberry Almond Cake Recipe Stick to the Pan?
There are a couple of different reasons your cake may be sticking to the pan, but the most common reason is that you didn’t use enough nonstick cooking spray. Sometimes, your cake can be salvaged if it’s stuck to the pan. If the cake does not jiggle free from the pan when you flip it upside down, try placing the pan in the freezer for an hour. After the time is up, use a thin spatula or butter knife to loosen the edges of the cake from the pan, then flip the pan over and jiggle the pan again to loosen the cake.
