Lemon Ginger Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Tuesday, September 9, 2008

I made this cake - from the Whimsical Bakehouse again - minus the ginger. It's a pound cake recipe with cream cheese - you actually cream the cheese with the butter before adding the sugar. It tasted great! I'm not sure if the cream cheese added much or not. It certainly was a moist cake. I think the cream cheese adds moistness without the heavy "butteriness" butter adds, so that's what makes the recipe uniquely successful. Sadly no pics of this.

I made it plain - no filling, frosting or glaze. It seems most people down here prefer their cakes plain (that, or I haven't found the "correct" frosting recipe yet). That's a whole big issue I'll probably be posting on later on.
