Cream Cheese Pound Cake III
April 30, 2006

I've used this recipe for several years. My husband yearned for his Mom's pound cake and unfortunately no one seemed to have her special recipe. I looked for many years until I found this one in a church cookbook which he believes is "just like Mom's". In our family cookbook it was voted "The Best Ever Pound Cake". Others might be interested in an alteration I've made when adding nuts to this cake. Reduce the flour to 2 cups and add one cup of pecans by hand at the end. For several years I've reduced the sugar to 2 cups and haven't missed it. But if you like chocolate chips or icing on your pound cake then you'll most likely want to keep 3 cups of sugar in the recipe. I also start baking in a cold oven, my grandmother said it made the crust true. I'm not sure if there is any truth to this or just an old wives tale, but the cake turns out great! A definite family favorite.
