Brown Sugar Pound Cake

Happy New Year 2013!! This is my first blog post for 2013.  I think it's good luck to have a sweet treat as a first post for the New Year, it's a sign that this year will be sweet for us all, not salty, not sour, not bitter, but a very sweet year, or as the kids like to say, "SWEEEEET".!!

Brown Sugar Pound Cake is a dense wonderful cake, perfect with tea, or accompanied with whipped cream and strawberries, as my daughter would prefer. This cake doesn't have a lot of extra liquid such as milk added to it, as other recipes call for, which makes it more like a bread than a light cake. It reminded me of a brown sugar cookie. It would also be nice drizzled with chocolate or caramel sauce.

Pound Cake:

  • 1 cup - packed  Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 cup - (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 4 - eggs
  • 1 teaspoon - vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cups - all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon - baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon - salt

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. In large bowl, beat sugar and butter until fluffy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Add vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add to sugar mixture. Pour batter into pan. Bake one hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pan and turn out on rack to cool completely. Top with whipped cream and fruit if you like.

Nice pound cake, Nettie! I can imagine the molasses in brown sugar gives it a warm and wonderful flavor.

Happy New Year,
