McNannygocious Pound Cake
1 8oz Philly Cream Cheese
1 1/2 cups Butter (3 sticks)
3 cups Flour (Triple Sifted)
3 Cups Sugar
2 teas. Vanilla Butter and Nut Flavoring * or Cake Batter Flavoring (new for 2020)
1 teas. Imitation Butter Extract
1 teas. Pure Vanilla Extract
1 teas. Pure Lemon Extract
Cream butter, cream cheese, and sugar. Add eggs, flavorings. Triple sift flour and remeasure 3 cups. Blend into creamed mixture. Bake in a tube pan or angel food pan at 325 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. Easy, huh? One more thing, after you have your batter in the pan, take a butter knife and make a circle around the center if you using an angel food pan or a straight line in the center if using a tube pan.
* If Vanilla Butter and Nut Flavoring or Cake Batter Flavor is not available in your area, use 1 extra teaspoon of Vanilla and 1 extra teaspoon of Butter flavoring instead. Also, for a change, you can substitute the 1 teaspoon Lemon extract with any extract of your choice like rum, brandy, almond, pineapple, coconut or orange.
