Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese Pound Cake Batter

  • In large bowl, using mixer, cream the sugar, cream cheese, butter and vanilla bean paste.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well in between each egg addition.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, cake flour and baking powder and gently fold the dry ingredients in the wet ingredients until it is just combined.
  • For a bundt cake, grease and flour the bundt pan well and pour in the cake batter and bake for 50-60 mins.


  • For loaf pans use 2 - 8-1/2 x 4-1/2" parchment lined loaf pans and divide the batter between the two pans evenly and bake for 30-40 mins.


  • Use a 9 x 5" pan, parchment lined loaf pan and bake for 50-60 mins.

For Doneness
