How to make Brown Sugar Caramel Pound Cake

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 325 degrees. Spray with cooking spray or grease and dust with flour a 12 cup Bundt pan.

Step 2: In a bowl, beat the butter until creamy. Add in the brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time.

Step 3: Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.

Step 4: Gradually add the flour mix to the batter, alternately with milk. Beat until just combined. Then, stir in the toffee chips and pecans.

Step 5: Scoop the batter into the greased pan. Place inside the preheated oven and bake for 85 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the middle, when it comes out clean the cake is done. Tip: Cover the cake with foil while baking to prevent excess browning.

Step 6: When done, remove the pan from the oven and let the cake cool for 10 minutes.

Step 7: Remove the cake from the pan and let it cool completely on a wire rack. Before serving drizzle over the caramel over the cooled cake.

How to make the Caramel Drizzle

Step 2: Heat over medium-high heat and bring to a boil while whisking frequently.

Step 3: Lower the heat and simmer for 8 minutes, still whisking frequently.

Step 4: Remove the pan saucepan from the heat and whisk in the butter and vanilla.

Step 5: Let the caramel drizzle cool for 5 minutes before using. Tip: Don’t over cool, drizzle the caramel while it is still hot.
