Butter and cream cheese provide the rich taste in this deliciously dense pound cake. I always top mine with a fresh lemon glaze made of fresh lemon juice and confectioner's sugar.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C). Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan.
  2. Beat butter and cream cheese together with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat sugar into butter mixture until light and fluffy. The mixture should be noticeably lighter in color. Add the eggs two at a time, allowing each pair of eggs to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Beat in vanilla and almond extracts with the last eggs. Pour the flour and nutmeg into the bowl and beat until just incorporated. Pour the batter into the prepared tube pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 80 minutes. Check for doneness after 1 hour. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

A traditional recipe for basic cream cheese pound cake with a little variety in the flavoring and a half cup less sugar. The blend of almond and nutmeg didn't appeal to me, so I just stuck with boring old vanilla - and added about 1-1/2 cups of frozen blueberries. What peaked my curiosity, really, was the lesser amount of sugar than the standard recipe calls for. Since sugar has a lot more to do with a baked product than just its sweetness (like volume and moistness, for example) I was interested to see how it might affect the final result. Well, apparently reducing the sugar by this half cup was not enough to affect its quality in any way. It was delicious.

I made this recipe for a cookout with my boyfriends family. It was a hit to say the least. I was quite pleased with the result. I drizzled straberry glaze over the top and scattered fresh sliced strawberries on top of that and then sprinkled it with confectioners sugar. It was delicious. Unfortunately this is not the recipe I was looking for but it was a great substitute. A woman i used to know made an angel food cake that had cream cheese in the recipe and it was heavenly. I cannot find anything like it and i am not able to get it from her anymore. Anyway, this was agreat cake. Thanks for making me look good with the family. a couple people swore i had to have bought it cause normal people don't bake like that from scratch. Box mixes has ruined the world of baking in my opinion.
