Several followers have messaged me about a pound cake recipe. I have used several recipes and really like them all. Today I wanted to show you one that was given to me by my best friend, Jane. She got the recipe many years ago from a sweet lady, Granny Barronton. This cake is delicious without adding a thing, but you could add strawberries, peaches, blueberries or ice cream. You will also find this recipe in my cookbook. I have made it many times over the years to take to those who might be sick or to a church function. The video of me making it is on my Mama Sue's Southern Kitchen Facebook page. I hope you will try it sometime and let me know what you think.
8 oz. cream cheese
3 sticks of butter
3 cups of sugar
3 cups of Cake Flour
1 tsp. vanilla
Soften and mix cream cheese and butter.
Stir in sugar. Mix well.
Add eggs, one at a time mixing well.
Gradually add Cake Flour and mix well.
Spray tube pan with Bakers Joy and pour batter in.
Bake in a 300 degree preheated oven for 1 1/2 hours. Check with a toothpick to make sure that it is done.
