|Vintage harvest Nordic Ware Bundt pan by stockintrade|
A Bundt is a cast aluminum ring pan with a fancy pattern. According to Wikipedia, it entered the American cooking oeuvre in the 1950s when a group of Hadassah Society members asked the co-founder of Nordic Ware if he could make a metal version of the traditional ceramic European Gugelhupf pan used for making festive holiday yeast breads. It was not exactly a red hot seller...until 1966. Pillsbury Bake Off. Tunnel of Fudge. The rest is history. Tunnel of Fudge is singularly to thank for the massive number of harvest gold, tangerine and avocado green vintage pans we all come across on our thrifting missions. Think Chocolate Lava Cake with nuts.
