Pour the batter into a ungreased 10 inch tube pan with a removable bottom( I use one with little feet- makes it easier to cool) 4.Bake for 55 minutes- test with a cake tester or toothpick inserted in center comes out clean 5.Let cool for 5 minutes, then invert pan. If using a pan without feet, invert onto a narrow neck bottle- hang upside down until completely cool about 1 1/2 hours.
