Plate of a Southern dessert - a tender, moist Brown Sugar Pound Cake.



This classic Southern dessert is a rich, tender, and buttery cake with the deep flavor of caramel from the brown sugar.  Serve it plain, with ice cream, caramel sauce, or buttered and toasted.  Delicious!



2 cus light brown sugar, packed

1 cup granulated sugar

1 ½ cups butter, room temperature

5 large eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

½ teaspoon caramel extract

3 cups cake flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

¼ teaspoon salt

1 cup sour cream


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Grease and flour a 10-cup bundt pan with butter and flour or with a Baker’s non-stick spray.  Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter and both sugars until light and creamy – about 5 minutes.

Add eggs, one at a time, and beat until well mixed.

Next, add in the extracts and beat well.

In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt.

Stir half of the flour mixture into the butter mixture.  Mix until just combined.

Add half of the sour cream and mix until just combined.

Continue with the last half of the flour mixture and then the sour cream.  Do not over mix.

Spoon the batter into the prepared bundt pan.  Smooth the top with the back of a spoon.

Bake in the preheated oven for 60 – 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Remove the cake from the oven and cool in the pan for 10 minutes.

Carefully invert the cake onto a cooling rack and cool to room temperature.

Slice and serve.
