      This is SO SO SO good. Rich and caramelly, moist, dense and purely decadent. Mine did not come out of the pan well at all, so I turned it into a triffle with some homemade caramel custard. It was amazing.

      I made this for my dad's birthday. He's not overly fond of birthday cake and I thought I'd try something different. This took some time to mix but it was so worth it. My dad actually ate two pieces and said "I didn't know you could bake like this." Yummy. Thanks!

      This is one of my favorite cakes. I am a huge caramel fan and I of course love pound cake. Everyone loved this cake. Thank you for posting your Aunt Sallie's recipe. This is a blue ribbon recipe! I know that I will make this cake again.
