Cream Cheese Pound Cake with Fresh Strawberries

Every time I think of pound cake I picture my grandma in her kitchen with curlers in her hair and a pound cake on the counter.  I’m not sure why I associate my grandmother with pound cakes but I do.  I have never actually made a pound cake.  This was my first ever pound cake.  It is dense and delicious.  I actually made the cake because I want to try my hand at baked Alaska’s and I need pound cake to do that.  I am really happy that I tried making this cake because it is so easy to make and it tastes so buttery and rich but not in an overwhelming way.

If you were making this cake as a stand alone dessert you could add some fresh lemon zest and it would add a whole new dimension to your pound cake.  This cake is perfect for summer barbeques served with whatever berry is in season!

5.  Add the flour all at once and mix in. Add vanilla and mix thoroughly.

I love this cake.  It is so basic and easy to make.  This pound cake will keep for 3 days in an air tight container.
