My daughter in law wanted me to cook a cream cheese pound cake but I wanted something a little different so I compromised and put 2 of my favorite cake recipes together and this is what I came up with. Turned out great. In the picture it has half with pecans and half without because some of my family doesn't eat pecans so this is how I usually do my cakes that calls for pecans.
