WHAT IS A BUNDT CAKE?
A bundt cake is a cake that is baked in a Bundt pan. The shape is inspired by a traditional European brioche-like cake known as Gugelhupf. Bundt cakes are not generally associated with any single recipe. Instead, it is their distinct shape that gives them their popularity at gatherings and parties.
Cookware manufacturer Nordic Ware trademarked the name and began producing Bundt pans from cast aluminium. In order to successfully trademark the pans, a “t” was added to the word “Bund”. Bund means “bunch” or “bundle” and refers to the way the dough is bundled around the tubed centre of the pan. Some believe Bund also refers to a group of people, making this dessert ideal for parties and gatherings.
A Bundt pan generally has grooved sides with decorative patterned shapes. The most defining design element is the central tube or “chimney” which leaves a cylindrical hole through the centre of the cake. A pan with a hole in the centre allows the heat to reach the batter in the middle of the cake which helps provide faster and more even heat distribution during cooking.
The fancy shapes and varieties of pans make for beautiful desserts that are so decorative there is often no need for elaborate frosting. This again makes it fitting for last-minute gatherings. Steaming in the Instant Pot also free’s up space in the oven for main entrees and side dishes.
