Caramel Pound Cake

Yield:  1 bundt pan

INGREDIENTS:

Pound Cake:

1½ cups butter, softened (3 sticks)

3 cups firmly packed light brown sugar

6 eggs

3 cups all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

1 cup whipping cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the icing:

½ cup firmly packed light brown sugar

¼ cup butter (1/2 stick)

¼ cup whipping cream

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

½ cup powdered sugar

DIRECTIONS:
For the cake:
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Cream the butter and sugar together. Gradually add the eggs and mix to combine.
  2. In another bowl, stir together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Add the flour mixture and whipping cream to the batter by alternating the wet and dry ingredients until everything is combined. Mix in the vanilla extract. Pour into a greased and floured Bundt pan and cook for 1 hour and 20 minutes to 1 hour and 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 5 to 10 minutes, then turn the cake out onto a cooling wrack and drizzle with caramel icing.
For the icing:
  1. Combine the brown sugar, butter, and whipping cream in a small pot. Heat until boiling. Boil for 2 and half minutes stirring constantly. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract and powdered sugar. Drizzle while hot over the warm cake.
Notes
If your caramel icing gets too thick or cools too quickly making it hard to pour, simply stir in a little whipping cream to thin it out some.
