Caramel Pound Cake with Caramel Glaze


If you are a caramel lover and love poundcake too, this is the cake for you! Easy to put together a little over an hour in the oven, easy as....well, cake. I can honestly say that I have never made this cake before now, and I am kicking myself in the behind. I should have made it a long time ago!!
Caramel Pound Cake
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed (I only had light brown sugar, so I used 2 cups of it)
1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup oil
5 large eggs
3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
Beat butter until creamy; add sugar until blended. Add oil until blended. Add eggs 1 at a time beating until yellow disappears. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; add to butter mixture alternating with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Add the vanilla. Beat at low speed just until blended.
Pour batter into a greased 10 inch tube pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes and remove from pan. Cool completely before drizzling with glaze.
Caramel glaze:
1 pkg (16 oz) light brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 can (5oz) evaporated milk (I used 2% milk)
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
Bring first 4 ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan. Boil, stirring occasionally for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add baking powder and vanilla. Mix occasionally while mixture cools and thickens. When it is cooled enough to drizzle, pour on top of cake. It took mine about 15 minutes to get to this thickness.

this is just too tempting!

My husbands Granny has a caramel pound cake recipe and it is to die for-literally! The cake is probably my favorite, but making that icing kills your arms! She says, "wooden spoon, no mixer", I am going to have to try a mixer one day and not tell her!

I am also going to compare the recipes-maybe your icing will be easier-wonder if anyone would notice? Probably NOT!!

Have a great Happy Halloween!
