Today is...National Bundt Day

Today is National Bundt Day!

The Bundt Cake was originally a German ring-shaped tea-time cake called a Bundkuchen.

Cake is a form of bread and were originally fried breads in a disk shape.

Yeast cakes are the oldest type of cakes and are similar to Babka or Stollen, a yeast fruit cake.

Sponge cakes are the first non-yeast based cakes and were around as early at 1615 in England.

Butter cake is the quintessential American cake, and is derived from English pound cake.

Cheesecake is not cake at all, but is instead custard-filled pie.

On the flip-side, Boston Cream Pie is not a pie at all, but instead is a custard-filled cake.

What is your favorite kind of cake?
