Maybe it should actually be called pounds cake.
Each year at school, the teachers always give a little something to the people on their grade level. This year I decided to make Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars and Cream Cheese Almond Pound Cake. I can't share the cookie bars recipe because it belongs to a friend of mine and I didn't ask her permission. The cake recipe is mine though. You can make it a regular cream cheese pound cake and use vanilla flavoring or an almond cream cheese pound cake by using almond flavoring. So good!!!
Cream Cheese Pound Cake
3 sticks of butter
3 cups of sugar
1 8 oz. cream cheese
dash of salt
1 Tb almond or vanilla extract
3 1/4 cups plain flour
Cream butter, sugar, and cream cheese together until
light and fluffy. Add salt and flavoring of choice. Beat
well. Add eggs one at a time and beat after each addition. Mix in
flour slowly and blend well. Pour into greased and floured tube pan of
angel food cake pan. Bake at 325 degrees for
1 1/2 hours until an
inserted toothpick comes out clean.
