This cream cheese pound cake recipe is such a hit!

Everyone has little (or sometimes big) failures in the kitchen every now and then and I truly expected this pound cake to be one of my failures.

You see, I struggle with cake. It’s just not something that I’m good at.

I often mess up cake mixes, if we’re being totally honest.

So, I hope you’ll take that information and you’ll keep it in mind when I tell you that this cream cheese pound cake right here? It’s perfection. If I can manage to make this without screwing it up, I bet you can too!

I have a few other cake recipes on the site that I can make time and again without messing them up! In case you’re also cake challenged and want to check them out, here you go: my eclair cake is no bake and fool-proof, my pumpkin coffee cake is one of the most popular reader recipes on the site, and my banana cake recipe is a total win.

I really think you’re going to love this cream cheese pound cake recipe, too! It slide right out of my bundt pan like magic, which is always a nice thing.

The strawberry coulis is amazing and I could have happily eaten it with a spoon.

It was the perfect combination of tart and sweet and it was so fresh tasting. You could also use raspberries or blackberries, but be sure to adjust the sugar as needed.
