Mama June's Pound Cake Recipe

So I made this cake today and it is soooo yummo! However, I finally figured out why the name is "pound" cake...there is a pound of butter in this baby! But it is so worth every bite!


1lb. Fleishman original margarine( I love that when my grandmother wrote this recipe for me she wrote "margin")
3 cups of sugar
10 large eggs
1 and 1/2 blocks of Philadelphia original cream cheese
1 top of vanilla flavoring (using the of of the vanilla bottle)
3 cups of All Purpose Flour
1/4 tsp. of salt

Cream margarine , sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla flavoring for 15 min. on Medium speed. Then add eggs and alternate with flour. Use 3 eggs at a time..the last thing that should be added is the flour. Blend everything together well. Put in tube cake pan which should be greased with spray (or butter if you prefer more) and some flour. Cooke on 325 for 1 and 1/2 hour. (If you have a gas oven it only takes about an hour). Use toothpick to pick and see if done.

My whole life I grew up eating this pound cake every Sunday at Mama June's. I think I came pretty close to how she made it! Hope you like it! It's so good!
