Cream Cheese Pound Cake

This cake may look plain, but it's one of the best cakes ever. It's flavorful enough to serve all by itself, or it can be dressed up with fruit and whipped cream. I've made this cake to give away for different occasions, and it's always a success.

Cream Cheese Pound Cake

1 1/2 cups butter, softened
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
3 cups sugar
6 eggs
3 cups all purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Grease and flour a 10-inch Bundt or tube pan. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and cream cheese at medium speed until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating well. Add the eggs one at a time, beating until combined after each one is added. Combine flour and salt, then gradually add to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended. Stir in vanilla. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 1 hour and 40 minutes or until inserted wooden pick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 10 to 15 minutes before removing from pan. Allow cake to cool completely on wire rack.
