Cornucopia Bundt Pan

Cornucopia Bundt Pan

I hope that Nordicware never stops coming up with new designs for its bundt pans, because the holidays would be a lot less exciting if we never had new designs to look forward to. Take this Cornucopia Bundt Pan, for instance. A cornucopia is a horn-shaped basket that is typically depicted overflowing with food and grains, symbolizing a bountiful year. Also referred to as a horn of plenty, the symbol has been around for centuries, but is most often associated with autumn and the Thanksgiving season here in the US. This pan is a new release from Nordicware and features the horn of plenty in nonstick cast-aluminum, bursting with squash, corn and other goodies.

This pan is clearly a good choice for fall baking, and a spice cake, pumpkin cake or even gingerbread would be an excellent choice to bake in it. Williams Sonoma even sells the pan in a set with a Brown Sugar Cake Mix.  But because the pan has a sort of vegetable theme to it, you could also opt for baking more savory breads in it, like a cornbread. If you grease the pan well with shortening or vegetable oil, you could even bake a regular yeast bread in this pan and come out with a very impressive loaf to act as a centerpiece – and an appetizer – at holiday dinners.

  1. I wish they showed a picture of a finished cake or loaf made in the pan!

  2. You can see it on the Williams Sonoma site & they even have a special cake mix for it. Sounds yummy!

  3. I’ve looked at this pan several times at the Williams Sonoma site. I agree, I think it has potential to make great edible centerpieces. Maybe I’ll splurge one day soon!
