For me this problem is usually from leaving the cake in the pan too long or not long enough. Too long and the the shortening congeals and sticks. Not long enough and the cake is still too hot and tender and therefore breaks. I have had great success with letting the cake cool in the pan on a rack for ten minutes after removing from the oven.

Sometimes the cake may not want to release easily but I take my time and never try to "force" the cake out of the pan.

The only way I have any consistent success removing cakes from fluted tube pans is to coat the pan with shortening using my fingers to get inside every little groove, then dump in some flour and tap it around to make sure every little spot is coated with grease and flour, then tap our the excess.
Spray pan release is unreliable, at best.

Usually, the best timer for turning out baked goods is your sense of touch. Turn out when the pan is still warm, but comfortable to the touch.

Bakers Joy. :cool:

Spray liberally and chill the pan.
Fill with batter, bake.
When you can touch the pan, tap on it's side a few times to suggest to the cake it may be time to leave the pan.
And then turn over.

If you like, you can leave the cake to cool in the pan and refrigerate over night. Pass the pan over stove flame several times and then dump.
This insures the cake is sturdy enough and the heat allows the pan coating to warm thus releasing.
bake first, ask questions later.
Oooh food, my favorite!
