Mmmm, Pound Cake!

I'm suppose to put a new recipe up every so often and today I made a pound cake that is...so easy...so moist...so gone!

 

                                       Cream Cheese Pound Cake

1 1/2 cups butter (3 sticks!!!) softened

(1) 8 ounce package cream cheese - softened

(3) cups sugar

(6) eggs

(1) egg yolk

(2) teaspoons vanilla extract

(3) cups  flour

Directions:

1. preheat oven to 325F. Grease and flour a 12-cup Bundt pan, tube pan, or 2 9-by-5 inch loaf pans

2. Combine butter, cream cheese, sugar, eggs, and egg yolk, and vanilla in large bowl: beat until smooth.

3. Add cake flour 1/2 cup at a time. Stir together until smooth.

4. Pour into pan. Bake 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

I've never had any problem with this recipe,  it always turns out great.  One thing I don't do that the recipe says is to grease and flour...I use Pam.  It always seem to work, plus I hate to grease and flour!  And if you think you must...here's a little tip!  Mix equal parts shortening and flour in a small bowl then use this mixture and you won't have flour all over the place...it works!
