Sweet Origins: Bundt, I Love You!

By: Amy Atlas, in Great Finds, Sweet Origins

Bundt Cakes and Mini Bundt akes

1) Zebra Bundt Cake 2) Root Beer Chocolate Bundt Cake 3) Banana Bundt Cake 4) Pear, Hazelnut and Brown Butter Mini Bundt Cakes 5) Mini Meyer Lemon Bundt Cake

Whether in its original size, a mini version, or painted with chocolate stripes like the Zebra cake above, the cake with folds on the side and a volcano-like hole in the middle known as the Bundt cake is making a BIG comeback!

The Bundt cake was inspired by a ring-shaped cake made in Germany called Bundkuchen and Kugelhopf.  In the 1950’s, H. David Dalquist, founder of NordicWare, created the Bundt pan after being asked by a group of women from a Minneapolis Hadassah to create a cake pan that would help them make the Bundkuchen and Kugelhopf that was reminiscent of their upbringing in Europe. While the Bundt cake gained some popularity in the 1950’s in America, its popularity sky-rocketed in 1966 when a Pillsbury Bake-off contestant used the Bundt pan to create the “Tunnel of Fudge” cake.

We collected pictures around the web {with links to the recipes} of Bundt cake recipes that could be great for fall baking. From spiced pumpkin to pear hazelnut brown butter and root beer chocolate, these recipes will definitely get you in the Bundt cake mood.

  • I adore bundt cakes! They seem to be the only cakes that I can make prettily, lol! (My layer cakes are crazy ugly- no joke.)

    Here is a favorite bundt cake recipe that I came up with myself… It is a Chocolate Covered Cherry Coke Bundt Cake. 😉
