A fantastic pound cake for a fall luncheon.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This toffee and brown sugar pound cake has a soft inside with a nice outer crust. Sweet and buttery with bits of toffee and pecans throughout, you'll find yourself snagging just one more slice of this pound cake. Drizzling with caramel and sprinkling with pecans takes this easy pound cake over the top. A divine fall dessert.

Note: The cake does not rise a lot so make sure to fill the pan to an inch from the rim. If there is extra batter, make a few muffins with it. The Test Kitchen
