Cheese and Vanilla Bean Pound Cake with Almond Glaze

Hi Everybody! After a few weeks of busy work I'm back and with this awesome pound cake. It has cheese in it and its sooo moist, Oh God I would just eat another slice. Well there goes my diet again! ;(  This recipe came from a little girls story book, where a young lady tell a story about her grandma teaching her how to bake and this recipe was on the end of the story. So I decided to try it out and its a really good and super easy cake to make, even little girls can make.

Cheese and Vanilla Bean Pound Cake with Almond Glaze:

8 onz  Cream Cheese
2 sticks  Butter
2 cups Sugar
6 eggs
2 cups cake flour with baking powder
2 tsp vanilla bean paste


2 cups Powdered sugar
2 tsp water
1 tsp almond flavor or extract

Cream the cheese and butter together. Then add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add 3 eggs first but one at the time and save the other 3 for after the flour. Add vanilla beat.  Mix in the flour 1 cup at a time, do not over beat. Now add the last 3 eggs one at a time. I used a bundt cake pan. So... butter or grease your pan and fill it with the batter. Bake at 350F for about 35mins. I took it out of the oven when the toothpick almost came out clean but left it in the pan a while longer. It came out awesome and so moist.

When it was cool I placed it on a dish and made my glaze.
Mix the sugar powder with the water and flavoring, if its to runny just add more sugar and if its to stiff just add a little more water, depending on your taste.

Would love to hear your comments, please post them below. Have fun and Enjoy, Its great!
