Have you ever tasted a cake that made you weak at the knees? If you haven’t our family’s Cream Cheese Pound Cake will definitely do the trick. This amazing cake means the world to me because it’s a recipe my grandmother created. It was passed down to my mom and she reinvented it. Then, I put my own spin on it. Over the years, it has only gotten better. Now, I want to share it with you guys!
What You’ll Need:
- 3 Cups of Cake Flour (I use Swan Downs, but if you can’t find it, King Arthur Flour is also an excellent option.
- 3 Cups of Granulated Sugar
- 3 Sticks Of Butter (I’ve used Land O’Lakes and Challenge Butter. Surprisingly, I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter is also a good option.
- 8oz of Philadelphia Cream Cheese
- 1 Vanilla Yogurt Cup
- 6 Eggs
- Tablespoon of Vanilla Extract
- Tablespoon of Cream Cheese Bakery Emulsion (Although not required for the cake to taste amazing, it definitely puts a great spin on it. This isn’t a common ingredient you’d find at your local grocery store, but it can be purchased at Walmart. You get a pretty decent size bottle for $3.97.
- Baker’s Joy No-Stick Baking Spray (I, personally, use Baker’s Joy, but any baking spray will do the trick!)
- Remove butter from the refrigerator at lease 3 to 4 hours in advance so it can sit at room temperature and soften a bit.
- Pre-heat the oven to 350. Then, sift all three cups of flour and set aside.
- Spray bundt pan with baking spray.
- Pour all three cups of sugar into a big mixing bowl. Add the sticks of butter, cream cheese, vanilla yogurt, and extracts. Blend until fluffy.
- Crack and thoroughly blend each egg one by one.
- Mix in a 1/2 cup of flour to the batter at a time.
- Pour batter into the bundt pan. Place the pan in the oven and allow the cake to bake until it rises. I bake for 45 mins. However, the baking time may vary from oven to oven. Once the cake rises, stick a baking pin in it to make sure if it is done. If batter remains on the stick, allow the cake to bake longer.
Since this cake is very moist, make sure you have a good bundt pan. Otherwise, you may be in for a rude awakening when its time to flip the cake out of the pan. There’s a strong possibility it will get stuck. I suggest purchasing a bundt pan of good quality. Stores like Joann and Michaels have a great selection of bundt pans to choose from. I purchased mines from Michaels.
But if you’re willing to spend more than a few bucks, Williams & Sonoma has an excellent selection of cool, decorative bundt pans that will allow you to create beautiful cake designs.
