Can a bundt cake pan and angel food cake pan be interchangeable?

I've been sick and tired and stressed, but had to get a majority of my Thanksgiving shopping out of the way today. I'd already been to two stores and was almost done when I realized I needed a new bundt cake pan.

After scouring the store all I could find was an angel food cake pan, which looks pretty similar, but doesn't have the ridges at the bottom. I wanted to be done with shopping, so I bought it. It was ten bucks and I was tired.

Does anyone know if using this will in any way adversely affect my bundt cake? I'm making Food and Wine's Spiced Upside-Down Apple Bundt Cake for Thanksgiving. I already suck at baking and I don't want to lessen my chances of making this successfully even further.

Thanks in advance!
