Question:

I am taking a baking class and was asked to find out the answer to this question: What purpose does the tube in the middle of a tube pan serve?

 

Answer:

A tube pan, also know as an Angel Food Cake pan, is a round cake pan with a hollow, cone-shaped center, that is used for baking ring-shaped cakes, such as sponge and angel food cakes. The tube promotes even baking for the center of the cake.  You can buy single-piece ones, or two-piece ones with a removable bottom and tube to make it easier to get the cake out.  Following are some examples of the tube pan:
