Homemade white bread is delicious but somehow when you can make food fun it tastes even better, especially when it comes to kids right? Think about making round sandwich bread as a surprise for your kids when you’re home for lunch on the weekends. Talk about mom with a cape.
Making a bundt bread sandwich starts with the basics. If you are a made from scratch baker I’m sure you have your own “trick” to the best bread ever. By all means use it but our timing and temp for the new pan shape and size.
What is a bundt cake anyway? Well in this case we aren’t making a sweet cake but you’re going to use the same pan as if you were. If you’re a baker I am sure you already have this fluted pan (another name for it) and use it often for desserts. Well this will broaden your horizons to other opportunities like this too.
I mean you can even make meatloaf and bundt pan stuffing in it if you wanted to! Now you don’t have to slice and fill the inside with lunchmeat though, you could just use it like bread to make toast in the morning.
This is another fun term for this, kinda’ makes sense since it is a sandwich in a bundt pan essentially. Slices can be used to make all sorts of lunches. From the simple Grilled Cheese in Toaster Oven to filling with leftover ham or tuna fish we have made it all.
No matter what kind of batter or bread dough you add into this pan you want each spot inside to be the same thickness so it bakes even. To do this just tap the pan on a hard surface before placing it inside your oven. Easy peasy.
Always. Give it at least 10 minutes, 15 is better, on top of a cooling rack so when you rotate it upside down it won’t fall apart. Ensure you have sprayed the inside with non stick spray too which will help allow it to slide out.

Prepping it isn’t any different than if you were baking it in a loaf version that was smaller. You still activate the yeast first off and combine the dry ingredients, then combine it all with a little kneading but not overdoing it or it will not be as fluffy. From there you bake and fill with all the things like ham or making a fun Corned Beef Sandwich.
Bundt Pan Bread
You can use this simple homemade bread recipe for bundwich below if you don’t have a favorite of your own. This works really well and is the perfect amount to fit in a pan like this.
- 1 1/4 c water * 100-110 degrees F is ideal to getting it to rise properly and make it as fluffy as possible
- You always want a bit of sugar when baking bread
- A bit of salt
- 3 c all purpose flour
- 1 egg beaten is optional but adds a bit of shine to the top of the loaf, some melted butter works at the end too
You could make versions of this using refrigerated biscuits cut into 8 wedges each and throw into the pan too. It won’t be a smooth “loaf” like this though, bumpier but could still be sliced. Follow our savory monkey bread for one, or double our garlic pull apart bread for the other.

This is how to make bundtwich bread with this pan. If you’ve only baked cakes in it you’re in for a surprise with this and our bundt pan chicken recipe too. So versatile I tell you. Use it as a fun side dish just to slice and butter in the mornings or for lunch with all the things packed inside.
- Use a mixing bowl to dissolve your sugar and yeast in ¼ cup warm water that is at 100-110 degrees F. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.
- Stir the salt into the flour and then add into the mixing bowl, beat until combined scraping down the sides.
- Change the paddle to a dough hook and knead for 5 minutes.
- Place the dough into a greased bowl, turning the dough once to coat.
- Cover the bowl with a towel and place in a draft-free location to rise for 45 minutes or until doubled in size.
- Punch the dough down and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface.
- Measure your bundt pan (as sizes vary) to determine the length your bread should be, it shouldn’t overlap on the ends.
- Remove dough and roll into a rectangle with the long side matching the length needed.
- Tightly roll the dough from one long side of the rectangle to the other. Pinch the two ends together to seal into 1 ring. Spray bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray on the inside.
- Transfer the dough into pan in a circle, pinching where the dough meets. Cover the bundt pan and allow it to rise for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350 F. as the bread rises.
- Lightly brush the dough with the beaten egg, if desired.
- Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. It is done when it sounds hollow when tapped.
Move pan to a cooling rack for at least 10 minutes, cooled completely is best, before flipping on to a plate carefully. If you want to stuff bread ring with ingredients, slice bread in half horizontally. You can cut into small pieces and make air fryer sandwiches out of it too.
How to save leftover homemade bread
You want to keep it moist, period. The best way to do this is to only slice pieces you are going to eat right away, leave the rest whole. Wrap what is left tightly with plastic wrap (once it is completely cool) and keep on your countertop.
Slice and rewrap throughout the week. Make a pot of slow cooker chicken cordon bleu and stuff in between the layers for another meal. Ideally should be eaten within 5 days.
