Cream Cheese Pound Cake

We all our favorite desserts and this one has proved to be one of the favorites of

 

 

our visitors.  Our Favorite Cream Cheese Pound cake is so versatile and serves at

 

 

least 12 or more.  And I like that it stays moist until the last slice.

This cake is so good when served plain, but when you add toppings, it goes to a

 

 

whole new level.  It can go to an elegant dinner OR a backyard BBQ,

  

•  Spoon a couple of tablespoons of apple, blueberry, or lemon pie filling on a slice

 

 

   and see what reaction you get.

 

•  Top with a swirl of our Basic Buttercream Frosting or even better, our Chocolate

 

 

    Buttercream Frosting.

 

•  How about fresh fruit with whipped cream?
