I'm a pretty experienced cook so I feel kind of stupid posting this question BUT....
I recently purchased a Calphalon nonstick angel food cake pan in order to bake a pound cake (the recipe said use an angel food pan). But I'm a little confused...should I be able to release the bottom after I bake the cake? I tried my recipe last night and the cake came out beautifully, but I had to slide it out of the pan (which I did easily) because I couldn't figure out if some part of the bottom was supposed to release somehow. If it was, I couldn't do it.
Anyway, I'd appreciate some feedback from an experienced baker about this. Thanks everyone!
