Best Pound Cake

 I have gone through several recipes for Pound Cake and each one has its own pros and cons. Most of them have been a little dry...until this one!

Pound Cake Recipe

1-1/2 c butter

8 oz cream cheese

3 c sugar

6 large eggs

1 t vanilla

3 c flour

2 t salt

Combine butter and cream cheese.

Add sugar and mix until creamy. 

Add eggs, one at a time.

Stir in vanilla.

Add flour and salt and mix until incorporated.


Just before baking, spray two loaf pans generously with cooking spray. Pour batter into pans.

Bake at 300/150c for 60-70 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean.




 It's been over a year since our part of the country was in lockdown, but that has changed.

There is one case of Covid in the Auckland community so we are all locked down for three days and Auckland for a week.

For me, that means....no changes to my extravagant life style (as she tosses her hair back and smiles coyly--LOL), like last time. Of course, we are only the size of small sections of most countries, so that makes it very much easier to deal with, but I am grateful that New Zealand is able to handle things well.

We had planned a trip to the Auckland area in a couple of weeks, but that is off for now. Hubby has 'Plan B' (he must have been a boy scout because he's always prepared!), so I'm sure we will find some place to visit when we are allowed.

Let's hope we can be rid of this plague soon.
