Brown Sugar Pound Cake

Mmmm, Wouldn’t this BROWN SUGAR POUND CAKE be GORGEOUS on your holiday table! The perfect Thanksgiving dessert or Christmas Dessert but really it’s great any time of year. This cake is incredibly moist, lightly sweet, has a hint of lemon and a whole lot of DELICIOUS!

You can make this Brown Sugar Pound  Cake in a a regular Bundt pan or two 9 inch loaf pans but I think its looks stunning baked in this cascade pan. The powdered sugar catches in all the levels and layers of the cake making it look like a snow covered mountain.

Spray the pan well with Pam for Baking or a similar product to easily remove the cake from the pan after baking. This cake also freezes well and stays moist for days. I even froze and shipped one from Georgia to my cousin in New Jersey with fantastic results.
