Indulgent Delights: The Cream Cheese Pound Cake Recipe You Need to Try

Cream Cheese Pound Cake is a rich and dense cake that takes its name from the traditional pound cake recipe, which calls for one pound of butter, sugar, eggs, and flour. The addition of cream cheese gives the cake a wonderful tangy flavor and a moist texture. Here’s a recipe for Cream Cheese Pound Cake that you should try:


  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, softened (3 sticks)
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Grease and flour a 10-inch tube or bundt pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and cream cheese until smooth and creamy.
  3. Gradually add the granulated sugar to the butter and cream cheese mixture. Beat until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  5. Stir in the vanilla extract, mixing until it’s well incorporated.
  6. In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour and salt.
  7. Gradually add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, mixing just until the flour is incorporated. Be careful not to overmix.
  8. Pour the batter into the prepared tube or bundt pan, spreading it out evenly.
  9. Smooth the top of the batter with a spatula.
  10. Bake the Cream Cheese Pound Cake in the preheated oven for about 1 hour and 30 minutes to 1 hour and 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs.
  11. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes.
  12. After 10 minutes, carefully invert the cake onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  13. Once the cake is completely cooled, transfer it to a serving plate.
