most recipes state that it should be 25 degrees lower
for all recipes,    cookie sheets  bread pans, etc      so I always set it lower when i'm using the dark pans   i once owned a bundt pan that was black   and  also thin metal    and I never made anything in it that turned out right
I had an original bundt pan for about 25 yrs   my mother gave them to all of us one year
I made the mistake of loaning it to a niece  who says I didn.t        and I mourn it's loss      I've not found one satisfactory to me since

Welcome to this site. I don't like the black bundt pans either they are always burned.

I always check my cakes at least 10 minutes before the recipe says they'll be done.  Lots of times they are ready to take out of the oven at the time I check.  Probably 350 would be a better temperature for the cake.  My bundt pan is really a copper jello mold, I think.  It isn't heavy and cakes come out fine if i grease and flour generously.

I have 2 Bundt pans one is a darker finish and the other is more of a golden color.  I find I like the lighter one much better.  2 reasons I guess, the lighter one is a bit heavier and the cakes come out a bit lighter in color.  The dark one always seemed to turn the cakes darker.  I did reduce temp a bit and they were done a bit early but they still seemed darker. 
So I agree with the suggestion to turn the temperature down about 25 degrees and always, no matter what cake you are baking, check about 5 minutes before the first time given in the recipe.

 Yep, I too turn down the temperature's if the pan is dark. I now try to choose pans that are lighter. I have most of my pans with restaurant-grade heavy metal. They work really well. Oh, except for the cast iron frying pan.

Nellie - Try going to the Nordic Ware website and you should be able to find a replacement bundt pan.  I still have my original one and use it frequently and it is wonderful.  My daughter found one just like mine at a local Goodwill store and she only paid two dollars for it!

I, too, have loaned out items to a certain friend and learned the hard way to stop loaning because I never got anything back.

Good luck finding a worthy replacement bundt pan - they are out there.

  Thank you each and every one....replies are  unanimous....so lowering the temp has to be right.   Laughing I will give it another try.   I am also going to look for a new bundt pan.
