  • For The Cake: Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 15-cup Bundt pan with nonstick baking spray with flour; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy, about 3 minutes. Add sugars and vanilla, beating until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Spoon batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake for 45 minutes; loosely cover with aluminum foil and continue baking until a wooden pick inserted near the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack. Drizzle cake with Salted Caramel Sauce and sprinkle with about 1 cup Pecan Toffee pieces. Store at room temperature up to 5 days.
