What you need to make Brown Sugar Butterscotch Caramel Pound Cake
Tips to Make Your Pound Cake
Bundt Cakes are so easy. Basically you mix the ingredients together and dump into a bundt pan. No special steps ,no fancy prep work needed. All you need is a special pan. I love the bundt pans I have collected over the years. I have some older ones that are thinner, and cheaper, and have bent a little, of course I don’t know how, but they did. However, my Nordic bundt pans are more durable the anything I have ever seen. They come in fancy shapes and baking in them makes you look like a baking queen.
This is the one I used for this recipe Nordic Ware Crown Bundt Pan. It cleans up easy and I always use a baking spray like bakers joy that has flour in the spray. The cake comes out clean every time. Perfect pan for a pound cake.
You needs great Caramel sauce
For this pound cake you need a really great recipe for your caramel sauce. I love salted caramel and for this recipe the salt is subtle but adds a little something. This recipe for caramel sauce is so easy to follow. Check how to make it here. Salted Caramel Sauce. You can make this ahead of time and store it in your fridge for a few days until you are ready to decorate your bundt cake. Just warm it a bit before pouring over your cake.
Here are some of my favorite bundt cakes and here you can see the pans I have used.

You can bake your pound cake in any pan and it will taste the same. You might have to adjust the time of your baking, however, when you bake a cake you always need to check the doneness by inserting your toothpick in and make sure it comes to dry and is ok to have a few crumbs attached.
Drizzle your Caramel and cut a slice, go get your cup of coffee.
Now isn’t that easy and delicious!
