This cake will get you raves at your next pot luck or bake sale! It is so buttery and moist. This recipe is a great, classic pound cake.


Beat butter and cream cheese with a mixer on medium speed until mixture comes together.
Add sugar and extracts; beat until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to low.
Add eggs, one at a time, alternating with flours 1/2 cup at a time until all eggs and flours are used.
Transfer to a buttered, oiled and floured, 10-cup shaped pan such as bundt pan.
Place in cold oven. Heat oven to 325 degrees. Bake until an inserted tester comes out clean about 1 1/2 hours.
Remove cake from pan. Let cool on wire rack.

Jennifer, I'm calculating how long it would take me to drive from my house to yours. Do you have a guest room? LOL That Pound Cake looks so good.

Toni, you make me laugh. That is a very long drive. However I used to live in Johnstown,PA. If I still lived there, I would be only 30 mins away and we would share recipes and eat, eat, eat!

Hi Jennifer,
I've "Pinched" this recipe and several others that you've posted. This cake looks very good and I think I'd like to give it a try. If I'm successful, I'll probably have this on the dessert table for Thanksgiving! Thank you for sharing your recipes and please keep them coming. Felicia (Native Georgia Girl)

Jennifer, it's a could thing that I am not in close proximity to you. After my Weight Watchers Mtg, then it would be on to Jenny Craig, and the gym after that. And I would need that routine just to stay in the Plus Sizes!!!!
