This post was sponsored by Quaker Oats, however, the opinions expressed are 100% my own. Growing up my favorite breakfast was always Quaker Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal. I’d switch to different cereals now and then, after all, variety is the spice of life, but I’d always come back to my Maple & Brown Sugar.Read more
So I was looking on Pinterest for a bundt cake recipe because really who doesn’t love a bundt? I mean they’re always so pretty and require no talent whatsoever. I am amazed every time I make one how incredible it looks. So anyway as I was searching I made the most amazing discovery–brown sugar pound cake. BROWN SUGAR POUND CAKE? Really? This is a thing? Oh yes and like most decadent food, it seems to be Southern. Then as if brown sugar pound cake wasn’t mind blowing enough, they enhanced it with toffee and pecans. Add a caramel glaze and you have what my husband’s co-workers call “crack” cake.
My friend Big Red is the consummate foodie. By the way “big” doesn’t refer to her size (she’s only 5′ 4″) but to her large personality. She is the only one of my friends who everyone instantly remembers. I say, “You know, the one with the red-orange hair.” And the response is always “Oh yeah” followed up with some story that she told.
