As good as a pound cake is, I didn't think it was possible to improve upon the classic. Then, I tried this recipe for brown sugar pound cake and I knew that good things can only get better! It's amazing how much depth you can add to a simple pound cake just by adding brown sugar and pecans. The molasses in the mix really goes a long way to making this cake decadent.
Serve this brown sugar pound cake plain, or frost it a few different ways. Some of my favorites are brown butter glaze or caramel frosting. Of course, you can never go wrong with cream cheese frosting, so you can choose to ice it as you wish. It's also pretty delicious with just a little powdered sugar dusted on top, so feel free to serve it that way if you want to keep it simple.
