Pecan Pie Pound Cake! Many have asked me to make this for them. So, here is the recipe. The top does taste like pecan pie on top of pound cake! 4 stick butter, 4 cups sugar, 4 cups flour (cake or all purpose), 9 large eggs, 8 oz cream cheese, 2 to 3 tsp of vanilla flavoring. I leave my cream cheese, butter and eggs out to reach room temp. In Mixer, cream butter, cream cheese and sugar until smooth, add eggs one or two at a time, then add flour one cup at a time. Last, add 2 to 3 tsp of vanilla flavoring. Grease and flour your 10′ angel food pan and pour in batter.
