    My Daughter's 23rd birthday is today.  For her Cake every year she requests this one.  It has been one of my Favs from my Grand-mother's recipes. Going to show yall just how easy it is too!

    3 sticks of Butter...only buttah

    1 8 oz pack of Cream Cheese

    6 eggs

    3 cups of sugar

    3 cups of plain flour...and I don't sift it

    1 tsp Vanilla flavoring (and I only use the real stuff)

    Bundt pan...or 3 loaf pans

    Baking spray to coat the pans

    2 hours at the 300*....tooth pic test to see when done.

    Set oven at 300* to preheat.  Take the butter and the cream cheese and cream them together well.


    This is what that looks like after mixing.


    I let the butter and cream cheese come to room temp and soften.  Will be easier to mix.


    Now take one egg at a time...and blend them in the batter mixing well after each addition.


    This is what it will look like after all the eggs have been added.


    Add the flour next.  I usually add one cup of the flour and mix well...cause I don't want the flour flying all over the kitchen or me.


    This batter will be very thick.  This is what it will look like after all 3 cups of flour have been mixed.  Thick big time.


    Now for the vanilla...I just eyeball the measurement.  [​IMG]


    Nice and thick fluffy batter.  Ready for the bundt pan.  Now....I use Pam Baking spray and coat the inside of the pan...take a paper towel and make sure that you srpead the wealth and all areas are covered.


    Put in the oven at the 300* and let cook for about 2 hours.  Tooth pick test to see when its done.  Will put the finish pic in when its outta the oven.  You kitchen will smell wonderful!

    I'm trying to get my smokehouse finished and now you are going to put me back in the kitchen baking!!!

    Just so I don't mess up the flour like I did with the biscuits, when you say "plain flour" do you mean "all purpose"?

    I'm waiting on the finish!!!!
     
  4. Mmmmm... looks lovely, nice ingredients too.  Can I ask how heavy a 'stick of butter' is please.  I need one of those holy tins too, I'm going shopping tomorrow.  Many happy returns to your daughter, she has a talented Mom.

    I absolutely love cream cheese pound cake!  And what perfect timing to post this, with the summer berries coming on strong now.  I'm sure your daughter will be thrilled with her birthday cake!

    I'm so impressed with your baking skills!![​IMG]

    I've book marked this recipe, Miss Kat, and will be making it very soon. Thanks so much for the clear step-by-step instructions.

    Hope you have a great week!

    Morning Gary...1 stick of butter here is 8 TBS...or 1/2 cup.  3 sticks would equal 1 1/2 cups of butter.

    Great cross-sectional picture, Kat!!   The times I've made cream cheese pound cake I've ended up with areas that seemed undercooked or solidified or something.  I have no idea what I am doing wrong, but obviously you've got the right way all figured out. 

    Your pound cake looks divine!

    Have a great night!

    Looks awesome!! I'm wondering if cake flour would work? I seem to be out of AP, just have bread and cake flour at the moment but really want to make that cake.

    RIGHT NOW [​IMG]

    I have never used the cake flour for this one.  BUT...made a huge mistake one time and used self rising....it was a volcano in the oven.

    Cake flour is just silky compared to AP....I am supposing.  Never used Cake flour at all.

    If you do try it let me know....MD!

    interesting recipe....the difference from cake/AP/bread flours is the amount of gluten. cake flour should work in this one and should result in a more tender cake......can't hurt to try it.
     
  18. Looks great, I really want to try this with my kids, they love cooking with me. Any suggestions for high altitude changes/directions?
