Recipe: Cream Cheese Pound Cake

carla17November 5, 2007

I have made this cake for years and people love it. I thought since you folks are so nice, I would share.

Here goes:

Crusty Cream Cheese Pound Cake

6 large eggs

2 sticks butter or 1/2 marg.

1/2 cup crisco

1 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened (I use 1/3 light)

1 Tlbs. vanilla, I add other flavoring too

3 cups cake flour

3 cups sugar

Preheat oven to 325.

Beat butter and crisco together with stand mixer until creamy.

Add sugar a little at a time.

Add cream cheese and beat until fluffy.

Alternately add flour and eggs, beginning and ending with flour. Grease and flour a bundt cake pan or regular pound cake pan. Bake at 325 for one hour and 15 minutes. Let cake cool in pan for 15 minutes. This cake makes a crust on the top.

Side note: I use vanilla, lemon, and almond in mine.

You can freeze this cake and it makes a great gift.

Hope you enjoy.
