Will I ever need my Bundt pan again??

If you're too young to know what a Bundt pan is, get out of my thread


Just joking

What useless kitchen stuff have you had trouble decluttering??

I haven't used that pan since Ellie was born. She is *11*.

I use my bunt pan all the time. I make one giant loaf of banana or zucchini bread in there instead of two smaller rectangle loaves.

11 years is a long time to have a useless pan! I had to make that call on the spring form pan we were never using and I am feeling guilty about the pasta maker that we LOVE but have not used in 5 years, since ds was born, and with baby 2 on the way, looks like it could be a LONG time before we are rolling out pasta again!

Well, I just used my bundt pan this week... for the first time in many years.

As a matter of fact, I had to use the bundt pan, 'cause in my last fit of cleaning frenzy, I threw out my round cake pans & I haven't replaced them yet.

That will teach me to clean!:

I don't have my own bundt pan (and I'm 43 )

But I do remember my mom made an amazing from-scratch (of course ) carrot cake in her bundt pan.

But if you don't have her recipe, then yeah... you can probably get rid of the pan. Its useless otherwise. :

Well, maybe I will make some bread or coffee cake I did save my springform pan because I saw a recipe around Christmas I thought I might one day use

Maybe I'll pluck the pan out of the give away bag and trade a 25 y/o Tupperware bowl that's been in the basement for a loooong time.

bundt pans rock I have a Donna Hay book with a killer banana cake recipe that uses a bundt pan.

I think they just make things pretty-especially if you bake for someone else

It is just called monkey bread - it in no way resembles a monkey LOL LOL but I basically use my pizza dough recipe (though there are plenty of other good recipes out there just do a google search for monkey bread) and then I make it either sweet (breakfast or desert) or savory (dinner)

1.5 c AP flour (or 1 c white & .5 c wheat)
1 pkt or 1 scant T of quick rising yeast
1 t sugar
1/2 t salt
1/2 c very warm water
1 T vegetable oil

combine dry ingredients
add hot water and oil and mix untill a ball forms.

place on lightly floured surface, knead till smooth, cover and let rest for a few minutes.

divide dough into small balls - like about the size of a walnut

for sweet monkey bread

melt a stick of butter

in a seperate bowl mix cinnamon & sugar

dip dough in melted butter and then in sugar mixture and drop into bundt pan

for savory monkey bread
prepare one bowl of olive oil or melted butter and one bowl of mixed herbs (anything you want) salt and pepper too if you want...

also if you want to you can stuff each ball with a little cheese...

dip in oil and then in herbs and then drop in bundt pan

cook at 350 for probably about a half an hour

invert onto a plate before serving

the savory is good with tomato sauce to dip.

I use mine all of the time to make my favorite cake-5 flavor pound cake. But clutter is individual, so if you don't use it, you should get rid of it.

If you ever *do* need a Bundt pan again, is there someone nearby that you could borrow from? That might help in your decision.

I'm starting a thread in the nutrition and good eating forum so I don't hijack this thread any further LOL

I only use mine once in a blue moon... I make monkey bread (never tried a savory version though, that looks great!) and a rum cake recipe that I put over on the other thread.

In a pinch I've also used it for a jello mold. If you're too young to know what a bundt pan is you're probably too young for jello mold too, but this one is kind of a family tradition.

I knew I should have just posted it. It's really yummy. I usually make one and then cut it apart into small slices to freeze. They are perfect for a small treat or dh's lunches then.

FIVE FLAVOR POUND CAKE
2 sticks (1 cup) butter
3 cups sugar
5 eggs, well beaten
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon each of Coconut, Rum, Butter, Lemon & Vanilla Extracts

Cream butter, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, which have been beaten until lemon colored. Combine flour and baking powder and add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. Stir in flavorings. Spoon mixture into prepared 10-inch tube pan (a Bundt pan must be 10 inches or hold 12 cups; an angel food pan may also be used) and bake at 325 degrees F for 1-1/2 hours or until cake tests done. Cool in pan about 10 minutes before turning out.
