Of course, me being me, the first thing I did was start digging thru the sweet and yummy sections.  When I found the perfect recipe……..a pound cake to gift with the Cinnamon Honey Butter jars I had made.

Cinnamon Honey Butter and Pound CakePound cake should  have a fine, dense and moist crumb, full of flavor but not too sweet.  This recipe did not fail!!  I used vanilla bean paste, because I love seeing the specs of vanilla in the cake, and I switched out the lemon extract for almond extract, to go with the cinnamon in the honey butter.  Other than that, I followed the recipe to the tee.

I made a few mini loaves to wrap up and gift with my Cinnamon Honey Butter Jars, and a larger loaf for my family.    The cake was SO delicious, my family devoured it, before I had a chance to take any pictures of the sliced pound cake.

Cream Cheese Pound Cake

(slightly adapted from Taste of Home Cookbook)

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste (or extract)
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in extracts. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; beat into creamed mixture until blended.
  2. Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 325° for 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 hours or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. (Mini loaves bake for 35 mins)
  3. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

I was able to get one large loaf and 4 mini loafs with this recipe.

http://tidymom.net/2010/taste-of-home-cream-cheese-pound-cake/

I removed the mini loaves from the pan.  Let them cool completely.  Then wrapped them in unbleached parchment paper and tied with jute twine.  I just love how they looked with the jars of honey butter.
