If you have a bundt pan in your kitchen, it is probably one made out of cast aluminum that was produced by Nordic Ware. The bundt pan was invented by H. David Dalquist, the founder of Nordic Ware, which has produced well over 50 million pans to date. The signature ring shape of a bundt pan isn’t limited to metal, however, and there are other pans out there that you can use to bake your favorite bundt cake recipe and bring some variety into your bakeware. This Stoneware Bundt Baking Dish is a beautiful ceramic dish handmade by Master Potter Tony Holman in Texas.
The dish is carefully sculpted until it measures 4.2″ H x 8.4″ diameter with a 48 oz. capacity. This size is about half of the capacity of a full sized 10-inch bundt pan, so some recipes will need to be scaled down to work with it. Cakes baked in the pan will have a smooth, arching outline that is softer than some of the more elaborate metal bundt pans and well-suited to everyday cakes that you might want to simply enjoy as a snack, rather than something you want to present at a dinner party. The pan’s glaze gives it a nonstick effect that will make it easy to remove baked goods from it (though I always recommend greasing your pans) and it has a flat base that will allow it to sit level in your oven while your cake bakes. It is oven, microwave and dishwasher safe. While the pans all end up in the same consistent form, each pan is unique and is sure to make a beautiful – and functional – addition to your kitchen.
