My daughters supervisor loves this cake. When she takes it to work she just about has to go in the back door with it. He tells her that's the best cake he's loves that cake. That if I wanted to I can make it for him everyday. I must say myself its pretty good and I have fail at it a couple of times, but I stayed with it till I got better. I never thought I really could bake a cake, my sister she was the cake baker. Now that she's passed on I have to bake my own cakes or buy them already made. They are nothing like hers thought and that's one of the reason I miss her som much.
1Set butter, cream cheese, & eggs @ room temp.
Preheat oven to 325
Lightly grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan. Set it aside.
To make the cake, cream the butter and cream cheese together in a large bowl. Gradually add the sugar. Continue creaming until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time,(I uses brown eggs to me they makes it more richer) beating well after each addition. Blend in the vanilla extract. Gradually add the flour, beating the mixture until it is smooth. Slowly stir in the whipped topping mix. Stir until well mixed. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour & 30 mins, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Take the cake out of the oven. Let it cool in the pan on a wire rack for 15 mins, then unmold it onto a wire rack to cool completely. Transfer the cake to a serving platter or plate.
2This cakae also has a glaze if you like a glaze over it, I've did it once didn't really care for it.
It consist of...1/2 cup of confectioners' sugar, sifted, 2 teaspoons hot milk & 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Just drizzle over the cake.
