By SheilaJo Gillingham Jacksjojo

Got this recipe from a GUY Cook in Alabama ... Pound Cake is my favorite ... this is the best one I've ever had ... in case you wonder - no baking powder or soda needed when using cream cheese.

    Hey Mary, Yes you can use all butter, I have tried both ways ... because I really like to use butter in most recipes ... But I can't tell the difference in this cake, so I just do it the way he gave the recipe ... I figure it saves a little fat and calories and I can eat another piece ;) ... I just LOVE this cake!

    This recipe sounds so delicious. I am going to make this tomorrow afternoon. I just wanted a little clarity. When you say 2 sticks of butter, does 1 stick = a cup or half a cup of butter? Thank you so much. :)
