Well, who would have thought? The Bundts have their own holiday, November 15th. What originally began as a proclamation from the State of Minnesota, the birthplace of the Bundt, has transcended to a Nationally Recognized Holiday.
To celebrate the day, I thought I would give a Roundup of some of my favorite Bundt-related things. These are a few of my favorite things (cue the Music)
I Like Big Bundts: Mary, the wonderful Food Librarian, did 30 Days of Bundts for 3 years in 2009, 2010, and 2011. It is a LOT of work, not only to find/create the recipes, but to bake, photograph, blog, and promote these 30 Bundts on her blog. Check out her site and be amazed! http://www.foodlibrarian.com/p/i-like-big-bundts.html
CNN’s Eatocracy has written a piece about the Bundts, including the history: http://eatocracy.cnn.com/2012/11/15/national-bundt-day/?hpt=ea_r5
Pillsbury, the popular American Baking Company and host of the Annual Pillsbury Bake-Off, can actually be credited with the resurgence of the Bundt when a woman won 2nd Place with the Tunnel of Fudge. Here is a list of their Bundt Recipes.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding: , one of my favorite movies is My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Not just because it’s a female writer and a relatable love story. It’s because they feature the cross-cultural exchange of a Bundt Cake! Nia Vardalos and family were customers, dare I say FANS of Kiss My Bundt’s retail bakery, and she was so kind to write an acknowledgement and comment on the back cover of my cookbook. Here is a YouTube clip of the infamous Bundt Scene.
