This is a buttery rich pound cake, moist and dense, drizzled with a milky caramel – made from sweetened condensed milk! Brown Sugar Pound Cake is unbelievably delicious.
Brown Sugar Pound Cake with Caramel
We just returned from a long road trip over the holiday weekend. (I also introduced the most amazing Thick ‘n chewy TRIPLE Chocolate Cookies, just in case you missed it.)
Armed with our barely used minivan DVD player and snacks, we packed up The Littles and set out for a lengthy drive up to the North Shore. After living in Minnesota for nearly six years, it’s high time we took the plunge and headed “up north” where apparently all the locals spend their summer days.
We must have felt a need to make up for all these past summers that we never did the up-north thing, because we went well past Duluth and all the way up through Grand Marais. We went so far as to set our feet on the Canadian border.
I was clueless to the fact that we needed more than shorts and hoodies. I mean, really. Nobody told me about the ominous thunderstorms that weave in and out all day long. The kind that makes you pull over to the side of a dirt road ’cause you can’t see a thing in front of you.
Pathetically, I scoured the small town gift shops looking for pants for The Littles. Apparently, pants are not a hot gift shop item.
Thankfully, we did get to make our way to some crazy gorgeous waterfalls and hiking trails, covered by canopies of beautiful forest trees. It’s the kind of nature that reaches all your senses and puts you in awe.
And, despite the windy hailstorms we encountered, we had a phenomenal time sightseeing and sampling the local eats of the North Shore.
We munched on freshly made donuts so good, they’re literally dubbed the “World’s Best.” I had one of the best pizzas ever, made by a guy named Sven. #Truth.
Naturally, we didn’t forget to bring a truckload of goodies for road trip munchies. I clearly didn’t bring enough.
I wish we hadn’t eaten all of this Brown Sugar Caramel Pound Cake so soon.
Not your traditional pound cake
This is some awesome pound cake. It’s not a traditional pound cake like this buttery one, which we also highly adore.
This Brown Sugar Caramel Pound Cake is packed with, well, brown sugar. It’s rich and dense. Moist and buttery (very buttery.) It’s lathered in a creamy milky caramel.
Not any caramel, but a caramel made from sweetened condensed milk, so you KNOW it’s got to be great.
Pound Cake is for both breakfast and dessert
I couldn’t stop scraping the pan and eating every last bit of yummy cake scraps. Desperate, maybe. Insane, not really. Worth it, totally.
This Brown Sugar Caramel Pound Cake is the perfect brunch treat, next to your favorite cup of joe. It’s also a fabulous dessert, next to a tall glass of milk.
It’s also great for slicing up and taking on a road trip. Just sayin’.

Loaf Cakes to Make
Here is my all-time best pound cake ever. Moist, Buttery Pound Cake.
Do yourself a happy, hungry favor and make this Buttery Poppyseed Bread. It’s called bread, but pssst. It’s really more of a pound cake that you’ll dream of for days after. Nothing is richer, denser, moister, or buttery-er.
If you’re in the summery mood for lemon, you’ll love this Lemon Almond Poppy Bread. It’s awesome for breakfast, brunch, or dessert. I’ll take it anytime of day, every single day.
