WET INGREDIENTS Pound cakes have quite a few eggs. In this recipe, the butter and cream cheese is beaten with sugar and then the eggs are added one at a time. A bit of vanilla extract adds flavor.

CREAM CHEESE Make sure to soften the cream cheese. This will make it easier to cream with the butter and the sugar.

After it has cooled down, pound cake can be stored in an air tight container or tightly covered with plastic wrap. It should last on the counter about 4 days.
