Winning Cream Cheese Pound Cake

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.

    We made this today and based on the reviews I was looking forward to a delicious pound cake but was disappointed. It lacked any real flavor, was dry and floury. I sprinkled powdered sugar on top hoping that would help but sadly it did not.

    This is a rich cake, perfect to serve with fresh fruit and whipped cream. It will freeze nicely, and you could bake it as a loaf. Because is is a more dense cake, it is perfect for those fancy bundt pans too, as it will hold the shape. Sometimes I add a bit of lemon oil or zest- but really this is great just as it is

    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 absolutely love this recipe. I make it often and I have shared the recipe with several people. It always comes out of the oven smelling and Iooking delicious. I also love to toast a slice and eat it that way.

    Warning: Don't eat this warm, you will not be able to stop! Very good cooled also.
