Cream Cheese Pound Cake


Here's a yummy recipe to try when you'd like something simple, yet scrumptious.

1 1/2 cups butter, softened
8 oz package cream cheese, softened
3 cups sugar
6 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon King Arthur Princess Cake and Cookie Flavoring (optional)
3 cups flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan. Set aside.

In large mixing bowl, cream together butter and cream cheese until well combined. Add sugar and mix until fluffy, 4-5 minutes. Add extracts and eggs, one-at-a-time, beating after each addition until well blended. Gradually add flour and salt, scraping sides until blended. Pour into loaf pan, tapping gently to remove air pockets. Bake for 60-70 minutes until done in center, testing with toothpick. Cool for 10 minutes before turning out on wire racks. Cool completely. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve with fruit sauce.
