Butterscotch pound cake

Butterscotch pound cake
My sister ask me to find a recipe she wouldn’t ordinary make. We like to challenge each other. I knew she wouldn’t think about butterscotch in a pound cake.{she likes plain things} This is really a good recipe. She didn’t use coffee in hers, were not coffee people. She really loved it. Enjoy.
