This is the best and the last pound cake recipe you will ever use. My Pastor looks for it at every church gathering, and the people at the City Mission look for it every time my parents visit. It is rich, moist and will lasts for up to two weeks if you keep it covered, with foil or in a cake tray.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 6 eggs
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon lemon extract
  • ½ teaspoon orange extract

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Do not preheat oven. Spray a 10 inch Bundt pan with vegetable oil spray. Sift together flour, soda and salt and set aside.
  2. 2 In a large bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing thoroughly after each addition. Pour the flour mixture into the batter and gently fold in with a spatula. Stir in the vanilla, lemon and orange flavoring. Batter will be very thick.
  3. 3 Pour batter into prepared 10 inch Bundt pan. Place cake in oven and set thermostat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake for 60 to 70 minutes or until the top is golden brown and then turn the oven off. Let the cake sit in the oven for an additional 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in pan for 15 minutes. Turn cake over onto a cake plate and allow to cool while covered.

  2. This is a recipe everyone should have in their files. Do not understand reviewers that said it didn't have enough flavor and wasn't moist. Definitely have to use butter and beating is very very important. Thanks for submitting.
  3. Okay, after many attempts at other recipes, this is the one that my fiance goes crazy for (he's the REAL pound cake lover)! It's moist and turns out beautifully every time I've made it. I noted that there are some folks that said it turned out dry and I can't understand how. This one is - Read more ...
  4. My most favorite pound cake recipe. I tweak the flavorings as desired for different outcomes and it's always great!
  5. We made this one with our Brownie Troop for a Girl Scout event and it was easy to make (with children) and very tasty. Make sure the cream cheese and butter are at room temperature. Also, I add the extracts to the wet ingredients before stirring in the dry ones. It's easier that way. Finally, - Read more ...
  6. This is the best pound cake I have ever made or eaten. It was crisp on the outside - my family likes it that way. I used a decorative bundt pan and it did overflow so next time I will try a muffin pan for the extra that is left over. I also had to - Read more ...
  7. I love to bake and believe me, this is absolutely the most delicious pound cake I have ever tasted. It was easy to prepare and DIDN'T need icing or a complimentary scoop of ice cream. It is now my favorite cake! Hats off to Gina Pruitt!
  8. This was the best pound cake I ever made. I am a baker, and this cake was great!!!! I use brown extra large eggs, which seem to make the cake even richer. I had never thought to use orange extract blended, with the other flavorings. It was simply delicious!
  9. The best ever. I made it for a family gathering and I experimented with amaretto liquor and I got great raves. The original recipe tastes great too with the orange flavoring. Thanks Gina
  10. This recipe was easy to make and looked very nice. The flavor however was very bland and I tried to make it better but nothing worked and ended up throwing it away. A waste of ingredients. Very dry. Will not try it again.
