Cheese Pound Cake

Easy Cream Cheese Pound Cake


“Relish the homebaked light and moist cream cheese pound cake”

Pound cake simply means a pound of each ingredient or ratio of 1:1:1:1 of butter, sugar, eggs, and flour. I tried, but I guess my pound cake is still not in the so-very-strict traditional pound cake making rules (Well, I just wish to accomodate the majority taste buds of the modern world..still, almost 1:1:1:1 ration..:p), but it is definitely a delicious easy cream cheese cake.. (winking smile). And my pound cake resembles more like an American pound cakes which has lighter body, but often contain an abundance of butter to offer a rich taste. My pound cake is sweet, but not too greasy to have it served even after heavy meal.

Yes, this pound cake tastes mild in the palate, but never lose its the aroma of fragrant cream cheese. So, you will not feel ‘sick‘ for eating slices of it! Texture of this cake is, again, moist and smooth, especially when you eat it warm.

If you can’t finish the bake within a day, it’s OK. Refrigerate it and it may last for at least a week long. To serve it warm, just reheat with microwave at low heat for 30 seconds, to resume its soft and fluffy consistency.

Try it! This recipe is easy and delicious!

250 grams of cream cheese, softened

250 grams of butter, softened
5 small eggs (about 50 gram each)

2 cups of self raising flour, sifted
2 cups of sugar

50ml of milk

1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

8” round/ long cake tin, lightly greased with olive oil

1) In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar for 8 – 10 minutes, using electric mixer on medium speed. Beat in cream cheese and eggs until just blended. At low speed, gradually add flour, alternating with mlik, till well mixed. Stir in vanilla essence, using spatula.

2) Preheat oven at 150°C for 15 minutes. Pour batter into a greased 8-inch cake tin. Place cake tin at middle rack and bake for about 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center.

3) Let cake cool in pan for 10 minutes, before removing it to a rack to cool further. Serve warm, or store in a food container to serve later.

A small slice of my cream cheese pound cake counts about 250kcal.

If you are intend to serve this savoury to your guests, “sweeten” your treat by a touch of icing sugar on top of the slice. It makes better presentation and different stage of mouthfeel altogether, especially to the kids. They will like it this way!

However, watch out the extra loads of calorie, if it’s your concern (chuckling)..

Tips: Use measurement cup to measure the unit of “cup”. Or convert using my unit convertor at the side bar of my site. Use generic metric. Apologies, I am just a beginner in baking.. forgive me, if my measurement unit written wrongly.. sob sob.

  1. Are you sure you got the flour measurement right? 1 cup of flour is around 128 grm and 2 cups should be 256grms. So is it actually 500ml/grms or just 2 cups?

  2. Hi,

    I finally got what you mean.. Correct, the flour should be measured in grams while liquid in ml.. I wrote wrongly, I guess. It should be in grams. NOT ml. Yes, 1 cup of flour should be about 200 gram. Only liquid will be abt 250ml in 1 cup.

    I think I better take away the unit measurement in my recipe until I double/ triple check it again.. :p

    Yes, you are right. Liquid is heavier than dry items.

    Thanks for the clarification and help.. :)

  3. So, it is just 2 cups each of flour and sugar. The rest remains correct.

    But if adding 500 grams makes better cake, and anyone did try.. do let me know..:D
