Cream Cheese POUNDCAKE!

I love pound cake. And I LOVE my pound cake recipe. I have treasured and kept this recipe to myself for a long time, but in light of the current economic problems and job crisis, I figured that the world needed a glimmer of hope. Here it is people… in all of its buttery, sugary, eggish goodness. You might initially feel slightly guilty about eating this after looking at the ingredients, but when you put that piece of cake in your mouth all of that guilt will melt away into gratitude that the gods of baking have bestowed this recipe upon you! I only got a chance to take one picture of the baking process because I was in a hurry, so enjoy! 

The Meat Of It:
-3 Sticks of butter
-1 8oz package of cream cheese
-3 C of sugar
-6 Eggs
-1 TBSP vanilla extract
-1/2 TBSP almond extract
-3 C cake flour (DO NOT use regular flour. It tastes way different)
-1/4 TSP salt

How Its Done:(this is so easy its ridiculous)

Cream butter, cream cheese and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time. Add flavorings. Gradually beat in cake flour and salt. Pour into a greased bunt pan. Bake @ 325 for 1 hours-1 1/2 hours, put a toothpick in it, and if the toothpick comes out clean its done!
