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

Directions

  • 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.
