This Pecan Pound Cake with Praline Sauce is one of the best pound cakes you will ever eat.
My family’s favorite cake is Caleb’s Comfort Pound Cake. Caleb is my special needs son. I started baking with him before he could walk. Baking was a fun activity to help Caleb with his memory. He is now 17 years old, and he has baked a lot of pound cakes. Recently, we were planning on baking a pound cake. Caleb’s twin brother Casey asked if I could put pecans in it and fix my praline sauce to put on top of the cake. It sounded great, and I could not believe we had never tried it. Casey’s Pecan Pound Cake with Praline Sauce turn out so delicious.
I often get asked “What is the secret to your pound cake”? We have been baking pound cakes over 15 years and finally arrived at this super moist and delicious pound cake. Some people use sour cream, buttermilk, butter, and shortening. I use a combination of all of these products. This pound cake is always super moist and really does not need a topping, but this praline sauce is Outstanding. It is perfect on this Pecan Pound Cake,Caleb’s Pound Cake, Pumpkin Bread, or ice cream.
