The distinctive ring shape of bundt cake pan was always my favourite since a very young age. In the past my Mum and her sisters used to bake numerous sponge cake in a bundt cake pan to be used as part of the offering on Balinese ceremony days. In my family the sponge cake were called “jaje bolu” (Balinese language which translated loosely means cake that as light as a feather). It’s always a big hit, my Mum loves to experiment on the flavours too, such a sweet memories. Nowadays on ceremony days she preferred to order the sponge cake from a bakery near her house for practical reason.
Today is Galungan Day in Bali (Balinese holiday celebrating the victory of dharma over adharma. It marks the time when the ancestral spirits visit the Earth), I wish I could bake banana and chocolate chips bundt cake for my Mum’s offering, hopefully one day soon.
Rahajeng rahina Galungan, dumugi Rahayu.
