World's Most Famous Bundt Pan
Made in USA - Minnesota
200,000 Women Demanded This Bundt Pan in 1966!
It all started with Dave and Dotty who invented the Bundt pan in Minneapolis, Minnesota. They decided to name the new pan "Bundt" meaning "a gathering" and this cake was perfect for a gathering and party with its fancy fluting on the sides.
Then history unfolded. Ella Helfrich used the innovative pan to create the Tunnel of Fudge Cake recipe which won the 1966 Pillsbury Bake-off. Following the contest, Pillsbury was overwhelmed with more than 200,000 requests from people that wanted to purchase a winning Bundt pan and make their own Tunnel of Fudge cake.
Today more that 50 million Bundt pans have been sold and no one knows how many Tunnel of Fudge cakes have been eaten.
This is the original 10" Dave & Dotty USA-made Bundt cake pan and you can own it. It's made of heavy Pro Cast aluminum, 10 cu, holds 10-12 cups of mix, provides superior baking performance and bakes evenly browned cakes time after time. Nonstick coated for quick release and easy cleanup.
