Swirl and twirl.

The Bundt that started it all: Nordic Ware's aluminum pan was the first of its kind, and has remained the baker's go-to for decades. The dramatic, towering sweeps and curves of this Bundt pan were inspired by an German stoneware mold used to make kugelhopf, a traditional Alsatian yeasted cake. The cast aluminum means cakes rise evenly and develop a uniform, golden crust every time, and the nonstick coating makes for easy-to-release cakes (and breezy cleanup) every time.
