This is a recipe I found in an old family cookbook.... Just have fun with it. Measure and store the dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking powder) ahead of time in Ziploc plastic bag to shorten prep time.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This pound cake is anything but basic. Adding cream cheese makes the pound cake moist and even more delicious. Most of the ingredients in this recipe are staple pantry items. This pound cake will become your go-to recipe when you need a last minute dessert for a potluck, family party or if you get a craving for something sweet. The glaze on the top is on the thin side, but the flavors from the caramel frosting and rum soak beautifully into the cake. The Test Kitchen
