Did you know? The ring-shaped cake is thought to have originated from a European fruit cake called Gugelhupf, which was popular in countries like Germany.
By 1950, the bundt pan was created and the “bundt pan” name was trademarked by H. David Dalquist — founder of Nordic Ware, a kitchenware company. The cake and pan increased in popular by the 1960s when Pillsbury, a baking goods and food product company, had a baking contest, choosing a bundt cake recipe as second place.
