A deep baking pan that has a hollow tube in the center, which allows for more uniform baking. A tube pan is used for baking cakes such as angel food and sponge cake and may also be called an angel food cake pan. The pan holds the ingredients and after being baked, the pan is turned over so the firm cake that has been formed into the decorative shape of the pan, falls out onto a plate or counter to be prepared for serving. Tube pans can be made as a single piece of metal or as two pieces of metal consisting of a side and a flat round bottom that is removable.
