Recipe instructions Cream Cheese Pound Cake

1

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (170 degrees C)

2

In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to cream the butter, cream cheese, and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy (this should take about 5 minutes). Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition, and then beat in the extracts. In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt, and then beat this mixture into the creamed mixture until everything is blended.

3

Finally, pour the batter into a greased and floured 10-inch fluted tube pan (or bundt pan). Bake in the preheated oven for 75-90 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.

4

After baking, allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes before removing it from the pan and placing it on a wire rack to cool completely.

5

Finally, garnish the cake by dusting it with powdered sugar, berries, fresh mint, and whipped cream.
