How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  • Lightly butter a 10-inch tube pan, and line the bottom with parchment paper; set aside.
  • Combine 3 sticks butter and cream cheese in bowl of electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment; beat on medium speed until smooth. Add sugar; increase the speed to high, and beat until light and airy (about 5 minutes).
  • Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition and scraping down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed.
  • Add vanilla, flour and salt all at once.
  • Beat just until incorporated.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan, and shake lightly to even out top. Bake until cake is golden brown and cake tester inserted in middle comes out clean (about 1 hour and 15 minutes).
  • Place pan on a cooling rack; cool for 20 minutes.
  • Remove cake from pan, and let cool completely.
  • Dust with confectioners' sugar.

    I had a cream cheese pound cake recipe & lost it during a move (can't find that cookbook for NOTHIN'!), so finding this one pleases me to no end! It's an absolutely delicious, wonderfully moist, not-too-sweet pound cake! (I've also added a couple tablespoons of lemon extract to it for a lemony punch of flavor)

    This sounds delicious. I've never even made a pound cake because my mom makes them (and I just go over her place to eat it) But maybe I will try this.
