Cream Cheese Pound Cake. A gold standard among Southern desserts. Butter, eggs, sugar, flour, vanilla extract and a slight tang from cream cheese. Make this cake now for Thanksgiving next week. It's better if it "ages" for several days.
This pound cake has a heavy dose of butter, cream cheese, and eggs, which gives it the velvety texture on the inside and the heavenly sweet crust. The cake bakes in a low oven which takes a little more time to bake but is well worth the wait.
