A twist on a classic, this Brown Sugar Pound Cake turns a basic pound cake recipe into a richer, more deeply flavoured cake.

Served with apples that have been carmelised in browned butter and a dollop of cinnamon cream, this is one seriously satisfying pound cake.

It is surprising the difference that substituting brown sugar for white sugar can make in a pound cake recipe. The brown sugar gives the cake  lovely toffee caramel flavours that are further enhanced by adding a little maple syrup.

The sweet rich flavours of the cake are also perfectly complemented by the apples that have been sauteed in browned butter and cinnamon. A little cinnamon sweetened cream and you’re there.

Next time you’re thinking of making a pound cake, why don’t you try substituting brown sugar and enjoy a richer fuller flavour.
