Bundt cakes, those fancy circles of dessert deliciousness, have existed since 1949, when an aluminum manufacturer in Minneapolis turned out a special cake pan with a hole in the center.
In 1966, the Tunnel of Fudge Bundt cake won second prize in the Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest, and every home cook was baking Bundt cakes.
Baking up a little nostalgia is easy with a pan from the original Bundt pan maker, Nordic Ware.
