4 Unexpected Meals You Can Bake in a Bundt Pan
If you have a Bundt cake pan that gathers dust in the back of the kitchen cabinet, pull this decorative pan out and use it in your everyday cooking. Remember, it’s still essentially a baking pan, so you can use it for way more than dessert and chocolate cake. Here are four savory ways to bake with a Bundt pan.
I admit that I used to have an obsession with Bundt cake pans. At one point, I owned a standard pan, a castle pan, a rose pan, and a fleur-de-lis pan. Why all the pans? I think it’s because I found it was the easiest way to bake up an impressive-looking cake without making a layer cake or doing any decorating. The pan itself did all the hard work.
I’ve whittled down my collection now to just two pans, a standard 12-cup pan and the 10-cup fleur-de-lis. I have two because recipes are written to use one or the other, and that way I have the right equipment on hand instead of trying to scale recipes to fit.
Savory breakfasts and appetizers can also come out of a Bundt pan. Bake frozen white bread dough in the pan and sandwich a sausage-and-egg frittata in the middle for one giant, impressive breakfast sandwich. Need a light lunch or starter for a dinner party? Roll Swiss chard and feta cheese up in phyllo dough and bake in a Bundt pan for an easy version of Greek spanakopita. Now you have no excuse not to Bundt morning, noon, and night!
