There isn’t a single recipe that Bundt cakes are characterized by. Instead it is their unique shape that they are best known for. They generally have fluted grooved sides and a tube in the middle of the pan. This creates the hole in the middle of the cake.
This unique design means that more of the batter touches the pan than a normal round cake pan. This provides a faster and more even heat distribution when cooking.
Nordic Ware originally trademarked the Bundt name and became popular in the 1950’s and 60’s. Similar pans can be found under the name of “fluted tube pans.”
For this recipe you can choose to sprinkle with powdered sugar, to drizzle a passion fruit glaze, or to not decorate at all.
