Pound Cake
...brown sugar makes this pound cake an excellent alternative to traditional pound cake.


This is quite the unusual pound cake because it is sweetened with dark brown sugar and light brown sugar; it's hue is also that of the lighter sweetener. Someone once told me it reminded him of a Samoan cake.

Because I have grown to enjoy my mini loaf pans, I used them instead of the Bundt pan. I scooped 1 1/2 cups of batter plus 1 tablespoon of batter into each of four mini pans. The pound cakes finished in about 55 minutes; follow the remaining steps in the cookbook.

I love this "brown sugar" pound cake as it is simple, delish and it does not need a frosting. This is the first pound cake recipe in A Taste of Guam.
