Chloe helped me make this pound cake, she's gotten quite good around the kitchen. It could be because we watch the Food Network's show Chopped. I've come home to many a concotions since watching that show. Anyhow, I usually don't make this cake unless someone has just had a baby but it's so easy and I had all the ingredients so I picked it for dessert after church Sunday. We invited our interim minister Bill Branch over for lunch. He is just a wonderful person and minister, we enjoyed visiting with he and Jim Shaver who also came over for lunch. We laughed and laughed!
Ok, here's how it goes:
1 C. butter, softened (that's 2 sticks)
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
2-1/2 C. sugar
3 C. flour, sifted (I use all purpose)
6 eggs, room temperature
1 t. vanilla
Cream butter and cream cheese over medium pace in your mixer. Gradually add sugar then add one egg at a time, mixing well after each addition. Gradually add flour then vanilla and salt.
Pour batter into a greased bunt pan, I use Bakers Choice spray that works better than plan Pam spray, it'll stick unless you butter and flour it if you don't have Bakers Choice.
Bake at 250 for 1-3/4 hours. Cook on a rack for 10 minutes (don't go longer or it'll stick in the pan). Then remove from pan and cool.
I served it Sunday with Bald Knob strawberries that Jeanie gave us, it was delicious!
