We like big bundts and we cannot lie. We like little ones too — they’re adorable, and French looking, and we can always talk ourselves into eating more since they’re so small.
But while there’s certainly no reason to discriminate against any cake, there’s just something extra special about bundts. Maybe it’s their simplicity. We can drizzle, pour, or quickly drip our luscious icing over them, rather than worry about tedious crumb coats or flawless frost jobs.
Or maybe it’s just that it’s fun to say “bundt.” We’re giving you 20 good reasons to get your “bundt” on, plus some bundt cake goodies you can’t resist.
And a-Bundting We Will Go
Does anyone think of that scene from My Big Fat Greek Wedding, where the American mother brings a bundt cake to the Greek mother’s home, and she’s totally confused? After several failed pronunciations, she muses, “This cake has a hole in it!” This might refresh your memory.
Perhaps the most fabulous thing about bundts is that they look like doughnuts. Cake that looks like a doughnut? The only way it could get more awesome than that is if you were to put a doughnut in the center of a bundt cake.
Here’s your essential bundt cake collection.
