Cream Cheese Pound Cake

So I have another recipe to share with you, I found this online recently, it was a link posted on Pinterest for Cream Cheese Pound Cake.  Apparently it was first published in Southern Living Magazine in November of 2001.

It looked and sounded amazing, I've never heard of a pound cake with cream cheese in it before.  I made it last Monday and it was amazing.  The batter itself is quite dense, I guess that's why they call it pound cake.  It takes 1 hour and 50 minutes to cook.  Larry thought I was crazy to cook it that long but that's what the recipe said.  I did test it about 1 hour 20 minutes in just to make sure it was in fact still uncooked and sure enough, my tester came out anything but clean.  After I let it cool and removed it from the pan, the whole top edge crumbled off, just like the blog poster wrote in her critique of the recipe.  It did not however, stop us from eating it.  This cake reminded me of what a Sara Lee Pound cake used to be when I was a kid, yummy, buttery and oh so delicious.

I think this cake has so many possibilities; Larry thought it would be great for Strawberry Shortcake, I thought it would be perfect to cut up and use for Chocolate Fondue or you could also drizzle a multitude of yummy things on top of it.  I do however, feel it is just fine the way it is, simple perfection.

Try it, I think you will love it.
