Bundt pan for bread?

Has anyone ever used a bunt pan to bake bread? Do you know if there are any specific recipes that call for a bundt pan? I was just wondering...trying to figure out different (easy) ways to make fun shapes with bread dough.

If I used a bundt pan,do you think I would need to adjust cooking time or temp? For something like a white or light wheat loaf?

Because there's a hole in the middle of the pan, the heat can circulate throughout so the bread should bake more evenly and maybe a little faster.

I've made monkey bread in a bundt pan, but that is more like coffee cake, I suppose.

Good point Andy! I love this idea! It would look so lovely along side a big Sunday roast or for when you are entertaining. Clever htc, what inspired this thought?

So, when can we see pictures of your bundt bread experiment?

Picco - It's because I never use my bundt pan. And I've been playing around with bread like crazy these days.

Andy-Of course I'll take pics. I always am looking for feedback from my DC family on ways I can improve stuff I make. Though it will be at least next week before I can make this. I am making challah for the first time today. Tomorrow I am making white bread (also a first) for a dinner on Sunday. (We're deep frying a turkey and making left over turkey sandwiches. Even though the turkey isn't "left over")

p.s. I know it sounds like a lot of bread... I don't eat it all. I give it to family. (and friends, if they are nice ot me...hehehe)

I can see no reason why it would not work in a bunt pan. Just make sure that you grease the pan well so that it will release.

As promised here is a picture of the raisin bread I made using a bundt pan. The recipe called for the bread to bake for 40 minutes. I left the bundt pan in for 30 minutes. I think I should have left it in longer though because it didn't sound hollow on bottom when tapped.
