"This is the best and the last pound cake recipe you will ever use. My Pastor looks for it at every church gathering, and the people at the City Mission look for it every time my parents visit. It is rich, moist and will lasts for up to two weeks if you keep it covered, with foil or in a cake tray."

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Do not preheat oven. Spray a 10 inch Bundt pan with vegetable oil spray. Sift together flour, soda and salt and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, sugar and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing thoroughly after each addition. Pour the flour mixture into the batter and gently fold in with a spatula. Stir in the vanilla, lemon and orange flavoring. Batter will be very thick.
  3. Pour batter into prepared 10 inch Bundt pan. Place cake in oven and set thermostat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bake for 60 to 70 minutes or until the top is golden brown and then turn the oven off. Let the cake sit in the oven for an additional 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in pan for 15 minutes. Turn cake over onto a cake plate and allow to cool while covered.

The best ever. I made it for a family gathering and I experimented with amaretto liquor and I got great raves. The original recipe tastes great too with the orange flavoring. Thanks Gina

This is a recipe everyone should have in their files. Do not understand reviewers that said it didn't have enough flavor and wasn't moist. Definitely have to use butter and beating is very, ...

This recipe is AMAZING! This was my first pound cake, and it turned out to be the best I have ever had! Very moist- and the orange/lemon flavor really gives it something extra! Thank you Gina fo...

I really like this recipe! The cake came out moist and had alot of flavor. I would recommend using room temperature butter and cream cheese. This gives the cake a lighter texture.
