Bundt Cake


The Bundt Cake is German in origin and became popular in the United States in the 1950's.

Bundt Cake

The distinctive pan was patented in 1950 but didn't catch on until a bake contest in the 1960's in which a classic version won. The popular pan then sold close to 50 million units.

The name comes from the German "bund" but the "T" was added as a marketing gimmick by Pillsbury. 

This extremely popular confection even has its own day in the United States -- November 15.
