  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder


  • Before baking a pound cake, Allow all of the ingredients sit until they are room temperature and spray a 5 ¾” x 3” x 2” mini loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  • In a medium bowl, beat together the butter, cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer. Beat very well (about 3-5 minutes) until the sugar is fully incorporated and the mixture is pale yellow and fluffy.
  • Add the egg and vanilla and continue beating.
  • Add the baking powder and half of the flour, mix, and then add the remaining flour and mix just until combined.
  • Scrape batter into the pan.
  • Bake for 42-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Feel free to top with a glaze mixture of lemon juice and powdered sugar while hot.
