Southern Cream Cheese Pound Cake


A delicious and fluffy pound cake with a golden crust.



3 cups cake flour, sifted

6 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

3 cups sugar

8 oz cream cheese, softened

3 sticks butter (1 ½ cups), softened

¼ tsp salt

A little extra butter & flour to coat the pan


  1. Prepare cake pan by coating with butter and sugar.
  2. Set aside a different pan filled with a few inches of water (this creates moisture in the oven and prevents the cake from drying out while baking).
  3. In a separate bowl, sift cake flour and salt.
  4. Cream butter, sugar and cream cheese together using an electric mixer.
  5. Slowly add eggs, then vanilla extract.
  6. Gradually add flour. Mix until ingredients are well incorporated, (about 30 seconds)
  7. Add cake batter to pan; gently shake to remove air pockets.
  8. Bake at 325 degrees for about an hour and 15 minutes (time will vary slightly depending on the oven), crust should be golden brown. Check for completeness by using a toothpick; if it comes out clean, the cake is ready.
