Cream cheese mixed with butter, sugar, eggs, flour & vanilla; baked into a delicious & dense pound cake!
Cream cheese pound cake is a family favorite! It’s a simple recipe to throw together, that uses scratch ingredients. You toss it in the oven and enjoy the wonderful smell while it’s baking. This recipe makes a heavy, dense cake…the way a pound cake should be!
Ingredients are as follows:
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, room temperature
1 1/2 C butter, softened
3 C white sugar
3 C all-purpose flour
2 tsp. vanilla extract
Directions:Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Grease a bundt pan or a 10 inch tube pan.
Cream together the cream cheese and butter until smooth.
Add the sugar slowly and continue to mix until fluffy. (I usually mix mine for around five minutes so the sugar is thoroughly mixed, resulting in a nice fluffy mixture.)
Add the eggs one at a time, making sure to mix well after each one.
Stir in the flour (by hand) until completely incorporated.
Stir in the vanilla and pour into the prepared pan.
Bake in pre-heated oven for 65-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.
Allow to cool for ten minutes; remove from pan. Slice, serve and enjoy!
