Tosca Cake Extra Delux


A Tosca cake is basically a pound cake with a nut-caramel topping. My dad's favorite, and I make sure to bake him one every now and then. I like to vary the toppings, and this one had sliced almonds, chopped almonds, pecans and coconut which was a particularly successful combination! I hope you'll give it a try!
