Bundt cake. We have all heard of it, but what exactly is a “Bundt cake?” Ahhhh, now there is an interesting topic! There is no specific recipe for making a Bundt cake, because the word Bundt is actually referring to the pan in which the cake is made, not the cake itself!
So where did this pan come from? Well history has it, that two ladies from the Minneapolis Jewish-American Hadassah Society approached David Dalquist of the cookware company Nordic, to produce a pan that resembled the traditional Gugelhupf dish which was used to make a soft yeast dough cake in a circular shape. Thus was born the once trademarked “Bundt” cake pan.
Interesting bit of trivia for you there, but let’s get on to the reason you’re her, the good stuff. Recently I got out my Bundt pan and decided to whip up a little something for my family. I like to be a fun mom, so I was thinking of a way we could have cake for breakfast. See I told you I was a fun mom. After playing around with ingredients, I baked up this not too sweet Cinnamon Swirl Bundt Cake. And let me tell you, it was a BIG hit.
