It Came From My Cupboard: Moldy Oldie.

by Robrt L. Pela

Okay, it’s not really in my cupboard. It’s hanging on my wall. But, seriously, would you want me to use a 70-year-old bundt pan as anything other than an adornment?

This piece reminds me, every day, of how much I love the guy who invented Teflon. Because these old molded cake pans don’t really work. Everything you bake in them, no matter how much you grease the pan, sticks. So what’s the point?

And please don’t talk to me about Jell-o, which hadn't yet been invented when this pan was being used by poor, pre-mid-century housewives.

Pity them.
