Bundt Cake: /bənt ˌkāk/ a ring-shaped cake made in a fluted tube pan, called a Bundt pan. The style of mold in North America was popularized in the 1950s and 1960s, after cookware manufacturer Nordic Ware trademarked the name “Bundt” and began producing Bundt pans from cast aluminum. Publicity from Pillsbury saw the cakes gain widespread popularity.
No, SilverFox it is not a ButtCake! I know most men are 12 year old boys in their minds but really??!!
The Bundt Pan that was used to bake this cake is from the 1970’s. It belonged to my momma. I inherited it with the purchase of my house. I told her if she left it here I was keeping it. Nice of me huh? Just kidding! She married a man that is a gourmet cook and doesn’t need any vintage cookware. Score for me!
What can I say about this recipe except that it is the easiest thing to make. I love what I call “dump” recipes. You just dump everything in one bowl, mix, bake and your done. My kind of baking! The lazy girl kind!! Quicker way to eating dessert! I don’t even like cake and I like this cake. It tastes more like a brownie than cake because it is so moist and dense.
If you don’t like chocolate (your are some kind of space alien….clearly) you will NOT like this cake. It super, duper chocolately.
Just a friendly tasting tip: You should probably eat some with with a cup of coffee for breakfast and then as a snack after lunch just to be sure oh, and as dessert after dinner.
Oh, just me…..OK, I will take one for the team and test it out. I will do anything for you, my friends!
