DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Generously grease two 8 x 4-inch loaf pans or a 4-quart tube pan.
  • In a bowl cream the butter and cream cheese until smooth.
  • Add sugar; beat until light and fluffy, about 5-7 minutes (you MUST beat for at least 5 minutes this is an important step!).
  • Add the eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.
  • Mix in vanilla.
  • With mixer on low add the flour and salt in two additions.
  • Immediately pour in batter into prepared pan.
  • Tap pans to eliminate any large air bubbles in the batter.
  • Bake 60-75 minutes, or until cakes tests done.
  • Note: if the tops begin to brown too quickly tent loosely with foil.
  • Cool in pans for 10 minutes.
  • Turn out the cakes then cool completely with the tops up on a wire rack.
  • Note: if baking in a 4-qt tube pan increase baking time by about 5 minutes.
