Vanilla Cream Cheese Pound Cake Recipe

Hello everyone,

The weather here is not the best because it is summer.  It’s cloudy, rainy, and just blah.  It feels more like winter than summer.   Since we are stuck inside due to the heavy rainstorms instead of sitting on the couch I picked myself up from sitting on the couch and went to the kitchen to bake.  Yep, I baked this Vanilla Cream Cheese Cake.  This cake is my sinful treat, ohhhh

The first time I came across this recipe was a while back and it was on a cooking show.  This was not a cooking show correction it was a baking show and it was Martha Stewarts.  I tweaked this recipe to my own tasting because I prefer using plant-based butter and cake flour instead of all-purpose flour.  And I also added Vanilla Bourbon paste because I just love it rather than using Vanilla extract.  I just want to emphasize that where I live I can find a plant-based alternative for butter, but if you can’t then you can use the butter you prefer.

I loved how creamy the texture of this batter was with the added cream cheese and I think you will absolutely enjoy baking and eating this cake. 🙂

Have a great weekend!!
