Bundt cakes are practically a national pastime. Having a bundt pan in the kitchen meant that there would be warm, moist cakes, perfect with an ice-cold glass of milk. But bundt cakes, which reached a peak in popularity in the 1940s and ‘50s, have experienced a decline over the last half-century. Luckily, there’s a bakery that’s hoping to bring back the nostalgia and art of the bundt cake. Nothing Bundt Cake, a franchised bakery specializing inbundt cakes of all sizes and for all occasions, now has locations in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. Started in 1997 by two women who yearned for a bakery that used fresh ingredients in their cakes, the bakery now has dozens of locations around the country. From full-size bundts to “bundtinis,” bite-size bundt cakes, cakes come in at least 10 flavors. Vibrant red velvet is studded with chocolate chips, and cinnamon swirl is both spicy and sweet. Lemon, carrot cake and chocolate-chocolate chip are also popular variations..
Marie Hicks, co-owner and operator of the Tulsa location, says bundt cakes are an experience.
“The concept is a nostaligic wink to the past. It’s not just cake. My grandmother used to make bundt cakes, and that’s what we’re trying to bring back, that comfort,” she says.
