I’m not the biggest dessert fan (shhhh!) but I am a sucker for a simple cake. No frosting, nothing complicated and at most, all it needs is powdered sugar or some fresh whipped cream. I found this pound cake recipe from Philadelphia Cream Cheese and it was super easy to make. A family favorite moving forward but it was so good, I’m going to have to limit how often I make it! Enjoy!
1 1/2 sticks Butter, room temp
1 pkg Philadelphia cream cheese, room temp
1 1/2 cups Granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp Pure vanilla extract
2 cups Cake flour, sifted
1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
2 tsp Powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 325.
Beat cream cheese, butter, sugar and vanilla with an electic mixer till well blended.
Add eggs, one at a time. Mix well and make sure to scrape the bowl along the way.
Add the flour and baking powder, a little at a time and mix well.
Pour into a greased loaf or bundt pan.
Bake for about an hour or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool before removing from the pan. Sprinkle with powdered sugar to serve.
