PHILADELPHIA CREAM CHEESE POUND CAKE
- 3⁄4 lb butter
- 1 (8 ounces) package Philadelphia Cream Cheese
- 3 cups sugar
- 6 eggs
- 3 cups cake flour
- 1 teaspoon vanilla flavoring
3 sticks of butter equal 3/4 lb.
All ingredients (including eggs and cream cheese) must be at room temperature.
Cream butter well, add cream cheese.
Gradually add sugar.
Add eggs, one at a time.
Add flour gradually, then add vanilla flavor.
Place cake in tube pan in a COLD oven.
Bake at 325 degrees F (163 degrees C) for 1 1/2 hours (gas oven 1 hour)[from the time you turn on the oven].
The longer the cream cheese, butter, and eggs sit at room temperature, the better the cake (ingredients can be left out overnight).
