Don't try this at home. So I made the batter for the Norwegian Gold Cake and poured it into a tube pan. I almost used my Bundt pan, but thought, no, the recipe calls for a tube pan so use that. So I poured it in and shoved it into the oven.

About 10 minutes later, I went back into the kitchen to get some food for Liam and smelled something burning. I opened the oven, smoke poured out, and I saw that the batter was leaking out of the bottom of the tube pan and onto the bottom of the oven.

!@#$%^&*, said I.

I grabbed an old jelly roll pan to catch the rest of the batter and pulled everything out. I grabbed my Bundt pan and poured what was left of the batter into that (only a cup or two had spilled, but it looked like a lot more). By that time Liam was screaming for his food, so I turned everything off and went and fed him. Then I put him in his bouncy seat and surveyed the damage.

Luckily, the stuff on the bottom of the oven had baked just enough that I could scrape it up with a spatula. So I did that, and shoved the Bundt pan with the leftover batter BACK into the oven and baked it. I KNEW I wanted to use my Bundt pan!

Turned out wonderful. Next time I'm checking to see that the tube pan is properly assembled!

Whew.
