Here's the best pound cake recipe EVER- passed down to me by my mother who got it from a family friend and matriarch of Bluefield, WV- Mrs Sue Starling:
Cream Cheese Pound Cake
3 sticks butter
3c all-purpose flour
8oz cream cheese
Cream butter and cream cheese together with sugar. Add eggs and flour alternately- starting with and ending with flour. Bake at 325 for 1 hour 25 minutes. DO NOT OPEN OVEN UNTIL TIMER GOES OFF!
