Cream Cheese Pound Cake

I haven’t baked a whole cake for a long time. This one turned out pretty good!

  • 1 + 1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese at room temperature
  • 2 + 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 + 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 + 1/2 cup cake flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 325 ºF
  2. Grease and flour cake or loaf pans
  3. Sift together both flours and salt, set aside
  4. Using and electric mixer with paddle attachment,cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy
  5. Add eggs, one at a time, mix until blended
  6. Add vanilla
  7. Add flour mixture in 2 to 3 portions, mix until well blended, scraping sides of bowl
  8. Pour batter in pan and bake for about 75 to 90 minutes, toothpick should come out clean when inserted into centre (You can cover top slightly with tin foil for the last 15 to 20 minutes if it browns too quickly)
  9. Cool in pan for about 10 to 15 minutes before taking cake out , then on rack until completely cooled

You can serve it with fruits, caramel or chocolate syrups. You can even warm a piece up slightly and put ice cream on top !
