So I finally gave in and spent the money to get myself the Lodge cast iron bundt pan.  Man am I ever glad I did!  I love this thing and use it all the time.  Of course the first thing I had to make in it was a cake, so I decided to do a chocolate cake with a nice glaze and topped it with fresh raspberries!   Omgosh guys it was awesome!  Hope you guys try it and love it like we do!
