  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan. Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together 1/2 cup butter and 2 cups brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the maple flavoring. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the evaporated milk, mixing just until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 70 to 80 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. Decorate with Brown Sugar Frosting.
  4. To make Brown Sugar Frosting: In a medium saucepan, combine 1/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar, the confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla. Cook over low heat, beating until sugar is dissolved and mixture is smooth.

Cake is very good but the frosting is wonderful!!!!! It like candy and my kids love it. I will use it for other cakes also. Thanks.

I was disappointed with this recipe for several reasons. I followed directions exactly, making no changes but it still came out rather dry and tough. The strange thing is, I baked it for exactly 70 minutes, checked it for doneness, and then when I sliced into it, you could see that it was slighty undercooked. Usually, that would make for a moister cake...but not this time. The frosting/glaze was great, though (if you like brown-sugar candy, you'd like this!). It did not have the texture I was looking for either.

While this is a pretty cake, and while the frosting is wonderful, the cake itself is dry, dry, dry. 'Nuff said.

This cake has become a favorite at our house. Easy and proud to say it is a "scratch" cake. My grandchildren love the glaze!

Jan 20, 2007 icing was to die for. I did not make the cake because I had my own recipe, but the icing was so good. I had so many compliments on the icing and how it really complimented the cake. I will always make this icing for my pound cakes now!

Good pound cake recipe. I didn't have maple extract so used vanilla. The cake had a good texture and flavor. The glaze on top was really great. We served with strawberries and whipped cream.

This exact recipe appeared in a magazine I saw last month-I believe it was Southern Cooking or something like it...anyway I wrote it down and made it the same day and it was fabulous. I gave some to all of my "cooking friends" and everyone was VERY pleased. The frosting is great, although I thought the recipe made way too much of it and I covered the cake like 3 times with it! I'd scale the frosting back by 1/3 but otherwise a great addition to my recipe box.
