Southern Living Pound Cake 

My sister in law made this 
It was beautiful
And one of the BEST cakes I have ever eaten

It is a recipe from the 2006 Southern Living Magazine

It is a must try - you will definitely thank us!

1 1/2 cup butter, softened
1 - 8 oz. package of cream cheese softened
3 cups of sugar
6 large eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp salt
1 tbsp vanilla extract

Beat butter and cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy.  Gradually add sugar, beat until light and fluffy.  Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.

Combine flour and salt gradually add to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended.  Stir in vanilla.  Spoon batter into a greased and floured 10 inch tube pan.  (bundt)

Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour and 45 minutes - until a long wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool in pan or wire rack for 15 minutes.  Remove from pan and let cool completely.

Snowy White Glaze
Stir together - 1, 16 oz. powdered sugar, 5 tbsp milk, and 2 tsp vanilla extract until smooth - spoon evenly over top of cake.

I can't guarantee it will be as beautiful as my sis in laws - but it will be one of the yummiest cake you have ever eaten - promise!

She served it with homemade strawberry ice cream -
