A pound cake so delicious that no one will believe how easy it is.

This dense pound cake is ridiculously easy—just dump all the ingredients together and beat.


1 1/2 cups butter
1 package (8-ounce) cream cheese, softened
3 cups sugar
6 eggs
1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups cake flour


  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Grease and flour a 12-cup Bundt pan, tube pan or two 9-by-5-inch loaf pans.
  2. Combine butter, cream cheese, sugar, eggs and egg yolk, and vanilla in large bowl; beat until smooth.
  3. Add cake flour ½ cup at a time. Stir together until smooth.
  4. Pour into pan. Bake 70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
