Brown Sugar Caramel Pound Cake

Certainly! Here’s a recipe for a delicious brown sugar caramel pound cake:


For the cake:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups brown sugar, packed
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the caramel sauce:

  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Grease and flour a bundt pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, alternating with the sour cream. Begin and end with the dry ingredients, mixing just until combined.
  6. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan and smooth the top.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. While the cake is baking, prepare the caramel sauce. In a saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter, and milk. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 2 minutes, then remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
  10. Once the cake is done baking, allow it to cool in the pan for 15 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack.
  11. While the cake is still warm, poke holes in the top using a skewer or fork. Pour the caramel sauce over the warm cake, allowing it to seep into the holes.
  12. Allow the cake to cool completely before slicing and serving.
