Sweet Potato Pie Pound Cake with Brown Sugar Pecan Glaze

Now retired in The New Best of, Marcy Goldman, Whitecap Books, 2009.

This is a  lofty spice cake, perfect for Thanksgiving, Halloween coffee klatch or anytime at all in fall. The cake is fine-grained, delicate but moist -this is not a heavy cake, and gently spiced. It features a penuche-style sweet pecan brown sugar glaze. Alternatively, I offer a vanilla scented cream cheese glaze for more glaze/cake contrast. And sometimes.....I don't do glaze or icing but instead, opt for a spicy, streusel topping, like the one used in sour cream coffee cakes, and apply that before baking.  This is an amazing cake. Our testers bring their baking to work, volunteer venues, to schools, and groups they are involved with- This particular cake drew raves from anyone who had but a tiny crumb!
