Cream cheese in pound cake? yeah.. very very healthy 😉 (maybe not) – and very tasty. This september and October, we made a few trips to Wisconsin to meet our friends. It’s during one of these trips that I had a sugar high and bought this cake from a local gas station – it sure was tasty but way too sweet for me. I knew for sure that I had to make this at home and found a recipe on food.com. It’s a pound cake and I had to make it! I liked everything about this recipe – even the almonds that come in the way — 🙂
This is what you need:
1/2 cup of butter
4 oz cream cheese
1 and/2 cup of sugar
1 and 1/2 cup of all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup of almonds – divided
This is how you make: Steps: –
Preheat oven to 325* – Generously spray a loaf pan with non stick cooking spray – sprinkle the insides of the pan with a qtr cup of almonds.
In a mixing bowl cream butter and sugar until blended smooth. Add cream cheese and blend till smooth and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. – Now add eggs one at a time, and keep beating till they incorporate in the batter. Add the flour, vanilla extract and a qtr cup of almonds and beat for about 2-3 mins. – Pour into the loaf pan. Bake at 325*F for 1 hour . Check for doneness at 1 hour. A toothpick inserted into center of cake will come out clean.
