BEST BROWN SUGAR CARAMEL POUND CAKE
I made this for a family dinner, i am the baker in the family. I had quite a bit more batter than would fit in my bundt pan so I put the excess batter in a small loaf pan was yummy. We all loved it, I followed the recipe exactly with exception I used 3/4 cup of buttermilk and 1/2 cup of dark good quality rum in cake, oh boy delicious! I added 2tbsp of rum to caramel sauce while it was cooking this cake is awesome.
When I made this cake the first time it stuck in the pan and subsequently fell completely apart. I was so disappointed. After looking at the reviews, on my second try I lightly coated the toffee bits with flour before adding. I greased and floured a tube pan AND cut out and placed a wax paper round in the bottom of the pan. I also allowed the cake to cool in the pan for 20 minutes before removing. The cake came out smoothly and intact. I then removed the wax paper which stuck to the cake without any problems. Also, the tube pan held all the batter.
When making the caramel glaze, I recommend constant stirring, otherwise it will scorch.
I have not tasted it yet as it is for a s poo ecial occasion tomorrow. Smells yummy!
I baked this cake and it IS super yummy! I’ve actually baked it in two separate occasions and it turned out perfectly the first time and I just love how the glaze turned out…(the cake turned out perfectly the second time as well, the glaze was the only difference the second time) it was a little crunchy the first time, but the second time I baked it the glaze was not that consistency at all… it was moist and gooey, which is the way it’s supposed to turn out but I personally like the glaze being a little crunchy. I tried to duplicate the glaze when I made it the second time and my attempt was just that… an ‘attempt’! I think I must’ve boiled the glaze longer the first time, or possibly added a tad more sugar or maybe a tad less sugar? I don’t don’t know how I got it to be crunchy the first time but I appreciate any comments or feedback as to what made it so yummy and crunchy!! Thanks!
I made this cake, used a 9×13 pan, cut the baking time time to 55 minutes, decreased the oven temperature 25 F and made a Caramel icing for it ( my daughters request). It was so good. I had many people try it and rave about it. I sprinkled the toffee bits in a middle layer and that worked well. Next time I will try it as a coffee cake. Well worth the effort to make.
