My Bundt Pans

Bundt Cakes the only words that came out of my mouth when i saw my Bundt Pans from Nordic Ware. I had ordered them from Amazon and got them delivered to my cousin, Shikha's place, brought to India by my Uncle (who left his own things back to bring my stuff)..How nice of him...!! I thank them whole heartedly......Thank U Shikha......Thank u Uncle.........These gadgets have become more precious (more than the shining golden metal) as they bring smiles and we , bloggers feel proud to own them. I was waiting anxiously for them as we don't get such things in India. Procurring baking tools and ingredients is still very difficult  even in cities like Delhi. Bakers who reside in North will understand me perfectly. These kinds may be available in Mumbai or Banglore or if at all in Delhi , its very expensive. I also got a whole set of silicon pans which are still waiting for their turn to be cherished. 

It was a happy, joyful, red week for me....Got the lovely things........And imagine next day me dear friend, Smita brought another red baking set of stone ware for me. Thanks Smita... I just loved it.....!!

Bundt Pans have to be treated differently from the normal baking pans. Greasing them and taking out the full cake is not so easy. The tips about using Bundt Pans      helped me a lot to understand.

I choose an Orange Marmalade Cake recipe for my first Bundt. Made the batter hurriedly. I was waiting anxiously for the results. All the time thinking about whether the cake will come out properly or not . Thanks to  God, the cake came out full. I could see the strands of ornage marmalade. It was a very nice smelling , less sweet,  tea cake to be enjoyed with evening coffee.....but....but i could not make out the grooves easily. It was looking more an inverted funnel pan cakes. I was disappointed with the result.......I wanted a more denser, more prominent kind.
