What You Need To Know

Reflecting a recent miniaturizing trend in bakeware, manufacturers have shrunk the Bundt. Miniature Bundt pans come in two styles: single-cup molds and trays of six. We baked cakes in two singletons and in two tray models ranging in price from $3.75 to $40. Since all were nonstick and released cakes effortlessly, picking a winner came down to ease of handling and the visual appeal of the cakes. Both tray-style pans featured handles that made flipping out the cakes easier than flipping from the singleton pans. As the little cakes sat cooling on racks, we focused on looks. Only the cakes from the tray-style models had well-defined ridges. Since the main purpose of a Bundt pan is to produce cakes with a distinctive scalloped surface, we had no problem choosing a favorite, a mini version of our winning full-size Bundt pan.
