Most of us buy specialty pans for just one purpose, usually its for one thing and one thing only.

But specialty pans can be used for a variety of things, not just for the main reason it was created for.

Lets take my favorite style of bakeware pan, the Bundt Cake pan. Most people buy it for making bundt cakes, and then it sits in the drawer or on the shelf, collecting dust, and not really getting any use.


Uses for a Bundt Pan (besides cakes)=

Meatloaf


Bundt Pan chicken and veggies


Bundt Pan quiche


Bundt Pan stuffing


Bundt Pan bread


Bundt Pan stuffed bread roll


Bundt Pan jello mold


Bundt Pan tuna salad (or chicken salad) ring


Rice Crispy Bundt


Bundt Pan casserole


Bundt Pan cornbread


Bundt Pan ice ring for punch bowls


And for those old, worn out Bundt Pans...........

Bundt Pan planter


Painted Bundts (paint them and hang on the wall for decor)



Do you have any bakeware that is used for other purposes?

Well the bundt pan certainly can go a long way in the kitchen and is a useful thing to have on hand. The only on the list above that I have really tried is the jello mold, and it worked great. I am not the biggest jello fan, though, so some of these others ones are perfect for a nice little alternative. I am looking at the chicken and veggies and a nice way to make a family meal. Thanks for sharing.

Wow! The images of the Bundt Pan and where it can be use is such a nice idea to know and thank you for sharing it to us. The painted Bundts that was hanged on the wall for decor interest me and I think it is an artistic thing to do.

@ChesterV those mini corn dogs look SO awesome. In fact all the more savory options for foods in the cupcake trays are pretty epic and things that I hadn't really thought of before.

Making stuff in smaller portions like this also helps people watching their intake, as they can have "one" without having to cheat on themselves with "one more spoonful". This way, you get one piece and one piece only.

If you use shaped or character cupcake/muffin pans, then you can also make things kids are more interested in eating, because it is an interesting shape, and not just a "blob" on the plate.
