Pound Cakes have a lovely golden brown crust, a soft and tender crumb, and a wonderfully buttery flavor. In the past I've always made my Pound Cakes using granulated white sugar. But for this recipe I decided to change that and use light brown sugar instead. I really liked the results. The brown sugar turns the Pound Cake a lovely honey brown color and provides a mild caramel flavor to the cake. Delicious on its own, but I couldn't resist covering the cake with a Broiled Pecan Frosting.
