Why the bundt?

My mother made ring cakes. She still has the same golden aluminium ring tin that she has had since she was married. That tin is a staple memory of my childhood. 
It is quite common to know such a cake as a ring cake.

Since I saw this movie though, I have always gleaned great pleasure from the word, "bundt". 
Watch it and see if it doesn't make you feel the same way. 
Are you are bundt or a ring cake person?


  1. I love that movie....and I love me a 'ring' cake, although I always make a marble cake in ours,so the tin in our home is called, the 'marble cake tin'...hhmmm I feel like cake..............

  2. Bundt cakes were seemingly all the rage when I was a kid. It seems like every week there'd be some new variation with pudding, jello or marbling on the inside. On the outside, though, I believe it was always the same sugary glaze.

  3. We enjoyed Sticky Caramel Bundt Cake just this last week Annie ... The kids rejoiced in a new word. I feel a twit, but thought bundt must have been some special cake concoction, not merely the shape. I make ring cakes every week, easy for kids to cut and they never sink in the middle!

  4. ha! I am not a baker but it looks delish. ring, budnt, what have you...yum.

  5. my mom used to make a lemon cake in those pans, so pretty and delich..memories..
