Posted by Elaine2581This is my favorite pound cake recipe. It was given to me by a friend back in the 1990s and it is among my most requested recipes. Hope you and your family enjoy it as much as we do. 3 sticks butter, softened 3 cups granulated sugar 1/8 teaspoon salt 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened 6 eggs 3 cups sifted cake flour 2 teaspoons vanilla Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix butter, sugar and salt until creamy. Add cream cheese and mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, alternating with the flour. Add vanilla and beat the entire mixture for 2 minutes. Pour into a Large (12-cup) greased and floured tube or bundt cake pan, Bake for 90 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool in pan 10-15 minutes before inverting onto a cooling rack to cool completely. Note: It is not a mistake that no milk or other liquid is included. It is a thick, rich batter and will overflow and make a mess in your oven if you use only a 10-inch bundt pan. I learned from experience and just cook some of the batter in a small casserole dish or 6-inch pan if I choose to use one of my fancy bundt pans that holds less than 12 cups.
