This Sweet Potato Cake uses a Bundt pan which are generally used for baking the denser batters of coffee cakes and sweet cake. Their fluted sides and greater surface area produce more crust, which is desirable in cakes of this type. The tube in the middle of the pan promotes even baking as well as makes the cake easier to slice.
