Grandma’s Cream Cheese Pound Cake Recipe

My grandma rocks on so many levels. Even though I’m grown and out of the house I still look forward to going out of town to grandmas. She still baby’s and spoils me rotten.

I swear everything her hands create tastes soooo freakin good, including her cream cheese pound cake (my favorite kind of pound cake).

I could just sit in her southern kitchen and watch her cook all day long. When I went to visit this past weekend I asked if she could make me a cream cheese pound cake and with a smile she said “why sure”.  I wasn’t expecting it right that minute but she went into the kitchen and whipped this pound cake up like it was nothing.

What I adore about my grandma’s cream cheese pound cake recipe is that it bakes up incredibly moist and soft. The texture is so velvet-like and don’t even get me started on that soft, golden “crisp” that the outside has. Mercy. I hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as my entire family has over the years.

 

If you were to stop by, you wouldn’t leave without being forced to eat something!
