The Food Librarian's Bundt Pan Collection
This is a quick "bonus" I Like Big Bundts 2010 post. A few readers have asked how many Bundt pans I own, so I thought we'd do a little fashion show.
First of all, I don't have enough pans to get myself on Hoarders on A&E. They all fit in a Target plastic bin.
Classic Nordic Ware Bundt. This one is my favorite. Non-stick (but always use Pam with Flour) and classic curvy curves. 12-cup capacity, also called 10-inch Bundt. If you need one pan, this one is it!
Heritage Pan from Williams Sonoma. This is a 10-cup capacity Bundt pan sold online or in the Williams Sonoma store. You can also get it from Amazon. It is my second favorite pan.
12 mini-bundt Nordic Ware pan. This one is cute but they don't have holes in the middle. Sorta like an upside down muffin. You can top it with a dollop of frosting too. I've seen this for sale at TJ Maxx for $20.
Chrysanthemum Nordic Ware Bundt Pan. This is pretty and works best with light colored batters.
commercial grade one, but I have seen my non-stick one at many stores. It is perfect for giving out individual cute portions of Bundt cakes. I use this one a lot!
6-cup Nordic Ware Pan. This is perfect for 1/2 recipes.
Bavarian Nordic Ware Pan. This is a 10-cup capacity pan. Very pretty...but be sure to Pam with Flour spray the heck out of all these curves!
Multi Mini Nordic Ware Pan. This is the one my cousin picked up at the Williams Sonoma outlet. Cute little minis.
Nordic Ware Rose Bundt pan. This one works best with light color batters, like the other flower one.
Fiesta or Festival Party Nordic Ware Pan. I like this one a lot...during the holidays, these look like little trees. Well, I guess they look like regular trees all the time, but they take on special prettiness during the holidays!
P.S. Nordic Ware is my favorite brand. I don't like the Wilton pans because the curves aren't very curvy. And, FYI, I don't work for Nordic Ware or anyone like that! I've been buying Bundt pans since my college days (started with the 6 mini-bundt pan from Crate & Barrel). Most others were picked up more recently though. Just wanted to let you know what I have in my collection. You only need one pan to be a Bundt baker though; I hope you pull that out for National Bundt Day tomorrow!
