Better in a Bundt | Brown Sugar Bundt Cake with Salted Caramel Sauce

Brown Sugar Bundt Cake? You better believe it! After the success of my brown sugar cookies, I decided to tweak another favorite recipe with brown sugar.

I believe everything is better in a bundt. Bundt cakes require little to no additional effort but yet feel so special.

A beautiful bundt pan elevates a cake, making a statement. They make a beautiful centerpiece {and would nestle in nicely to this one} and ice without a fuss. 

I adapted the Million Dollar Pound Cake recipe {one of my absolute favorites} into a beautiful brown sugar bundt cake with caramel sauce. I love brown sugar everything, especially in fall. It gives a deeper, rich flavor and color for a delicious twist.

Of course what is cake without frosting? This brown sugar bundt cake can stand on it’s own, but I love adding a little “frosting” for fun. It is an easy way to decorate a bundt cake and to dip each and every bite, because you’re worth it.

On occasion, my sister has been joining me in the kitchen to develop recipes. It’s been so much fun, but so helpful as well. She and I have different styles. She takes recipes very literally and asks a lot of questions, which helps me in writing the recipe in a more effective way for you. This was her first bundt cake and it turned out amazing. I can’t wait for you to try it!

    The cake looks amazing and I bet it tastes even better being that it’s made with brown sugar. My Big Fat Greek Wedding is my favorite movie, and I LOVE that part…I always reference it, but no one seems to know what I’m talking about, lol. Glad to see someone else thinks it’s as funny as I do. Thanks so much for sharing at Mix it up Monday 🙂
