Vanilla Pound Cake

Call me crazy but pound cake is one of my favorite desserts. Its so versatile and you can basically top it with anything you want. I personally like to top it with fresh berries and homemade whipped cream but feel free to get creative and top it with whatever suits you best!

Serves: About 20
Prep: 15 minutes
Bake: 1hour and 40 minutes


1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) softened butter
8 oz. softened cream cheese
3 cups sugar
6 eggs, room temperature
3 cups flour
1 Tbs. vanilla extract

Preheat your oven to 300 degrees and grease and flour a bunt pan. Loaf pans work well too but bunt pans are just so pretty. In a stand up mixer, cream butter, cream cheese, and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing after each addition until they're all incorporated. Next add the flour and vanilla and mix well. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 1hour and 40 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan, on a wire rack for 30 minutes and then remove it from the pan and let cool until it is room temperature. Dust it with powdered sugar and top it with whatever delightful thing sounds good to you!
