Webster Cook Nook: Old-Fashioned Cream Cheese Pound Cake Recipe
Recipe Recommended By Anna Hubbel, Editor
I just turned 29 last week, and for my birthday cake request, my sister made me an Old-Fashioned Cream Cheese Pound Cake.
I knew this was the cake I wanted because one of my other sisters had it for HER birthday earlier this year. And I fell in love.
IT IS INCREDIBLE!
If you're not afraid of a cake that's heavy and moist, I STRONGLY recommend this cake.
