For Christmas, I got my very first bundt pan!  WOO!  I was so excited and immediately started looking for a tasty recipe to put my new bundt pan to the test.  I dunno about you, but when I think of bundt pans, I think of pound cake.  I mean isn’t that the primary purpose of a bundt pan? (ok I just really wanted to use “bundt pan” as many times as possible in that paragraph.)

I perused the interwebs to find a good pound cake recipe, and I landed upon this particular recipe.  Cream cheese pound cakes tend to be very dense and moist and they last for a good while without going stale.  That, plus they’re DELICIOUS.  I took this to my Sunday School class for breakfast this past week, and everyone loved it.  I got lots of compliments on how moist it is.  Don’t you just love how pound cake is an acceptable breakfast item?  I do.

This is a great, basic recipe for a pound cake, and I loved it.  Next time, I might try to get creative and add a glaze or maybe some lemon zest to give it a new twist.  I did find myself wishing for some fresh fruit to accompany this yummy cake!
