Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Happy Easter everyone !

Hope everybody is doing good at the respective places that you are at. We are doing fine too. Before you start asking if I made it today, the answer is No, I didn't. This time we had a very minimalistic Easter celebration. Just because we have the groceries for the next two weeks stocked up, due to lock down, we didn't want to use it all up in a day. But, wanted to celebrate it in a simple way with so much thanksgiving for all that we have for today.

This cake reminded me of how simple things can also be made more special. With minimal ingredients this cake was made to happen in a matter of an hour or less, but was very yum and appreciated far better than the cakes that would have involved too much effort. You don't have to make things complicated or put in extra efforts to make it special. Simple things can also make it to your memories. Such was this year's Easter. No potlucks or family visits or get togethers but still it shall be in our memories with the simple menu and a lot of catch up with family and friends over video chats :).

  1. 1/2 cup of butter @ room temperature
  2. 3 ounces of cream cheese
  3. 1 cup of sugar
  4. 2 large eggs
  5. 3/4 tsp of vanilla extract
  6. 1/2 tsp of lemon juice
  7. 1 cup of all purpose flour
  8. 1/4 tsp of baking powder
  9. A big pinch of salt
  10. Whipping cream and fresh cut fruits for topping

  • Preheat the oven to 325 F.
  • In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and sugar untill smooth, light and fluffy. Add one egg, beat it well. Add another egg and beat it too. 
  • Add the vanilla extract and lemon juice and mix it again.
  • Add the flour, baking powder and salt and beat it again, untill everything gets blend in well.
  • Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake it untill a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove it from the oven and let it cool for another 10 minutes. Now remove it onto a wired rack and let it cool complete.
  • Slice it. Top it with whipping cream and fruits and serve. Yum!

  1. Sifting some powdered sugar also would be a great way of serving it, in addition to the whipping cream and fruits.
  2. I have used blueberries and cherries. You could use strawberries or raspberries too.
