Caramel Pecan Pound Cake

Caramel Pecan Pound Cake

Taking advantage of the delicious caramel sauce that we prepared with my friends, I want to make several new and delicious recipes.

As I mentioned before, the sauce is excellent for filling alfajores, macarons or cakes… but it also works excellent as an ingredient in a new preparation.

This time I prepared a super soft and delicious sponge cake and accompanied it with a caramel-flavored buttercream. To this mixture, you add toasted pecans, and boom! Your new favorite cake!

White sugar with a finer and purer grain means it can dilute better in your preparations, giving a homogeneous and smooth result.

Premium Dark sugar is darker brown sugar, which means that its caramel flavor is enhanced, and it also gives a fantastic texture to your desserts.

As you know, the use of each type of sugar sweetens and adds texture to our preparations, so I have used both types of sugar in equal amounts for my cake. Thus the Special Premium Sugar will crystallize, giving a crunchy and delicious layer to my cake, while the Premium Dark Sugar will caramelize, giving a fudgy and caramelized texture.
