Cream Cheese Poundcake
Well I had been trolling blogs earlier in the week, and came upon a recipe for Cream Cheese Pound Cake. I had a slice of Lemon Pound Cake the week prior from a gal at work, and it was pretty good. So I figured, I should make one. And with cream cheese? Sounds even better.
I gathered up all the ingredients and put it together. I will say I followed what she said, but it took forever to bake. Literally. FOR-EV-ER.
True story. I don't think it was worth it. The crusty part on the bottom was tasty, I cut it off, because it wasn't sitting correctly. And cut it up, whipped up some heavy cream with some sugar, and served it with strawberries.
Like I said, I don't think it was worth it, and will not make it again. Maybe I am not a pound cake person. I just didn't understand why people always say how much they love a pound cake, but how it is so fattening that they don't eat it very often.
I am just not going to eat it very often in general.
But on the plus side, I did make some pretty good whipped cream. It may not have been very stiff, but I really wanted to avoid the problem I had when I made my Magic Strawberry Ice Cream, where I turned it halfway into butter..
I didn't throw it away (even though I wanted to), I brought it to work and left it in the galley, a.k.a. the magic area where everything gets eaten. Were you looking forward to trying a new recipe only to find out that you wanted to throw it away once it was finished?
