Can you put a bundt cake in a regular cake pan?

Nestle's Mayan Chocolate Bundt Cake - Nestle's Mayan Chocolate Bundt Cake I found searching for recipes with chocolate and cayenne pepper

I found a recipe on the Nestle website for a Mayan Chocolate Bundt Cake and it looks yummy (I love Mayan Chocolate) but I don't have a bundt pan. If you have a recipe that specifically calls for only a bundt pan, can you put it in a regular cake pan without a lot of trouble and if so, what size? The recipe doesn't specify a size but does say 12-16 servings, which makes me think 13x9 inch?

I really don't see why you couldn't make in a regular pan. I think bundt is only for the shape. I would check the cake every 10 minutes or so because there may be a difference in cooking time.

I think you might be right. I have other recipes that say for this kind of pan bake this long, for that kind bake that long.... a bundt pan is probably just another pan with another bake time

I don't own a bundt pan either. I would say give it a whirl in the pan you do have and adjust the time like others have said because it won't be as thick. I bet you it's easier to judge if it's done in a regular pan anyways.

I think it would be fine to use a regular cake pan. A 13x9 sounds about right. I would think that a regular cake pan would take less time to bake than a bundt cake pan since the cake batter would not be as thick. Just keep a close eye on it.
