Caramel adds a wonderful flavor to cakes, we all know that, as we know that it goes perfectly with chocolate! That’s why I’m sharing with you this amazing chocolate pound cake with caramel frosting, I hope you like it!

It’s funny to me, that, you never know when a conversation will end up being one that’s indelibly imprinted in your memory banks. Today I was thinking about a dialogue I so clearly recall that occurred seven or eight years ago. My son-in-law, Josh, asked a most interesting question. This is the recipe my husband’s mother always made him for his birthday, and I’ve continued that tradition, though these days I have the help of 5- and 7-year-old boys. It’s a very decadent cake with frosting so sweet it makes your teeth hurt, but it’s sooo worth the effort. Add chocolate chips and pecans for an extra special touch!


Cream thoroughly: 3 sticks butter, 3 cups sugar

Add: 6 eggs, 1 tsp. vanilla

Sift together: 3 cups flour, ½ tsp. baking powder, ½ cup cocoa, ½ tsp. salt

Add sifted ingredients alternately with 1 ¼ cups milk to creamed mixture.

Bake 350 for an hour. Try not to overbake… if anything, slightly underbake, if possible!

How to make the caramel Icing :
Quick Caramel Icing
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup whole milk
2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Place butter and brown sugar in medium-size heavy saucepan over medium heat. Stori and cook until the mixture comes to a boil, about 2 minutes. Add the milk, stir, and bring mixture back to boil, then remove pan from heat. Add confectioners’ sugar and vanilla. Beat with wooden spoon or electric mixer to make it especially smooth. Use immediately (while still warm) to frost cake, or else it will harden. If it does harden while you are frosting cake, simply place the pan back over low heat and stir until the frosting softens up.
