Winning Cream Cheese Pound Cake Recipe

Winning Cream Cheese Pound Cake Recipe

I got this recipe from a woman who came to my rummage sale. We got to talking about zucchini-she didn't know what the big squash could be used for. So I sent her some of my favorite zucchini recipes and, in return, she mailed me the recipe for this cake. It's absolutely delicious and I've made it often.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1-1/2 hours + cooling YIELD:12-16 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2-1/3 cups sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour


  • 1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Gradually add flour, beating just until blended.
  • 2. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. tube pan. Bake at 300° for 1-1/2 hours or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Yield: 12-16 servings.

"Easy recipe to make. I added some lemon zest. Good cake to serve with strawberries and ice cream. I will probably make again."

"Great recipe! This is one of my favorite go-to cake recipes. It always turns out so well, and everyone loves it. I can be "dressed up" with berries and whipped cream or frosting or ice cream, or it's delicious just as is."

"I made this cake last weekend, and it was very very dense and had a bit of a flour taste to it. the only way i would consider making this recipe again would be by altering the recipe a bit. But the kids and my husband liked it, and my dog actually stole the entire cake off the table after I forgot to put away, didn't even leave a crumb...LOL"

"I absolutely LOVE this recipe!! I make it in mini loaves at Christmas, as small gifts to tuck in boxes I need to ship. I get so many requests for it! It has such a wonderful flavor. I have made it with butter, and I have tried substituting margarine. I definately like the butter flavor better, but in a pinch... Would highly recommend this to anyone."

"After discovering this recipe, it's the only pound cake recipe that I use. I love that it's versatile; I've added lemon zest and fresh lemon juice for a lemon pound cake; I've also added blueberries to the original recipe or when I've made the lemon version. I have never had this recipe fail me. Absolutely love it.
