Brown Sugar Pound Cake with Caramel Glaze

Who doesn’t love brown sugar? Its granulated sugar’s kicked up cousin and evidence that the addition of molasses makes all the difference in your baked goods. Yes, that’s right; if you’re ever out of brown sugar just add a little molasses to your granulated sugar and tada (!) you’ve got brown sugar. We combine organic brown sugar, in this beautiful bundt cake, with toffee bits and a quick caramel glaze. It’s decadent, and rightfully so.
