Bundt cakes are defined by their round shape with a hole through the middle.  Bundt Cake are cooked in a very specific style of pan that gives them their shape.  This pan also allows more of the cake to be exposed to the pan.  Allowing for faster and more even heat distribution during cooking.  There is no specific style of cake that will, or won’t, work in a Bundt pan.  Here’s a great recipe that we are particularly fond of:
