This beauty is all Southern: rich brown sugar, sweet pecans, cream cheese frosting. A heavy crumb that is pure pound cake through and through. If Red Velvet cake is Tennessee Williams, then this Brown Sugar Pound Cake is Flannery O’Connor. Not so much a Misfit as it sat pristine upon the cake stand, but I wouldn’t have been surprised to spy a salesman drive by with a prosthetic leg in his backseat after I took the third bite.
Recipe was another from All Cakes Considered by Melissa Gray.
