History Of Bundt Cake

The creator of these molds was H. David Dalquist was an engineer and the owner of the Nordic Ware company that manufactured molds for baking. In 1950 he was commissioned by a group of Jewish women from the Hadassah Society of Minneapolis. This group wanted to recreate the traditional ‘kegelhopf ‘ a traditional thick Alsatian cake that has a hole in the center. The creator of the mold called it ‘bund’ which means union or alliance in German, however, it is not known very well why perhaps because the people who were pronouncing it added at the end I am left as ‘bundt’.

Making a good Bundt Cake is relatively simple, but like everything else, it has its tricks and secrets.

  1. WHEN BEATING: Butter and sugar, you have to do it correctly, without hurry, until the mixture whitens and becomes spongy. So we incorporate enough air to make our bundt fluffy.
  2. EGGS: Should be at room temperature, and little shakes so as not to cut the dough and remove the air. We toss and mix them little by little to respect the shaking process.
  3. DRY INGREDIENTS:  Dry ingredients are the heaviest, so we alternate them with liquid ingredients so that your weight does not “chafe” the dough and make you lose the air bubbles that we have added before. We add them at the end.
  4. THE MOLD: Mold will be very well greased, and we will let the dough settle into it by throwing it from the side. We will help it by giving a soft tap with the mold against the marble.
  5. WHEN REMOVING THE BANK FROM THE OVEN, let it rest exactly 10 minutes on a grid. Then unmold and let cool completely on the same rack for at least 2 hours.
