Wonderful cake and very important that butter is used and also thoroughly creamed with the cream cheese and sugar. This is the secret of a good pound cake. Always add 1 tbsp. of brandy to this type of cake, but that is a matter of taste. Does not need icing and keeps well. Highly recommended.
I gotta admit that, after seeing the photo of the cake, I though it would turn out to be just another nice tasting, though somewhat plain pound cake ~ Boy was I wrong! I will admit that I did add a couple of somethings ~ 1/2 teaspoon of orange zest & a similar amount of lemon zest, but then . . . ABSOLUTELY GREAT TASTING POUND CAKE, & a definite keeper of a recipe ~ Thanks for posting it! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my groupmates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #29]
This turned out great. Didn't change a thing.
