Brown Sugar Pound Cake with Glaze

Gail Herbest


This is a very moist pound cake, It has a light brown sugar flavor I double my brown sugar glaze recipe, I poke a few holes in the bottom of the cake and pour a small amount over it , let it soak in before I invert it on to a plate, then I drizzle with more glaze and save the left over glaze to add just a touch more to each slice after cutting, a big spoonful of vanilla Ice cream goes great along side of it.
