Life cycle of the Bundt Pan

by Azreel | February 18th, 2007

It’s a common misconception that bundt pans can be purchased at the store. This is not the case.

The bundt pan is actually a highly evolved species that can be found living in most western nations. While the life cycle of the bundt pan is not completely understood, we do know that it survives through a symbiotic relationship with humans.

The natural environment of the bundt pan is, of course, the kitchen. While most of its life is spent in solitude, during the mating season bundt pans migrate to office break rooms, church kitchens, and other potluck affairs. Here the bundt pans reproduce and then seek out new hosts.

After reproducing the young bundt pans, commonly referred to as ramekins, seek out hosts where they live off of a diet commonly consisting of flour and other baking ingredients. Since they are not warm blooded, they must be repeatedly warmed and cooled in order to metabolize their food. Sexually mature bundts are easy to spot by their unique donut shape. After approximately one to two years (depending on the species) the bundt migrates to the breeding ground and seeks out a mate.

A number of species of bundt have evolved. In the bible belt of the United States the most common species is the fluted bundt pan. Some of these have evolved into sub species such as the silicon bundt pan (Cocinaras bundtus-siliconus) and the teflon coated bundt pan (Cocinaras bundtus-teflonius).

Other species include the rare two-piece straight bundt pan, also known as the “angel food cake pan.” This pan has the unfortunate trait of being made of two nesting pieces, one of which inevitably gets lost, preventing it from reproducing or of surviving off of its regular diet of flour and “Pam” non-stick cooking spray.
