Cream Cheese Pound Cake

This is my son-in-law T's favorite cake. I make him one every year for his birthday, and he usually doesn't share...LOL

Cream Cheese Pound Cake
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese softened
3 Cups sugar
6 large eggs
3 Cups all purpose flour
1/8 Tbsp. salt
1Tbsp. vanilla extract

1) Beat butter and cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time beating just until blended after each addition.

2) Combine flour and salt: gradually add to the butter mixture beating at low speed just until blended. Stir in vanilla. Spoon batter into a greased and floured 10 inch tube or bunt pan.

3) Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour and 45 minutes or until a long wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack 15 minutes;remove from pan and let cool completely on wire rack

This is great plain with a cup of hot chocolate, a cup of coffee of a glass of milk. It's also great with cool whip or ice cream on top. But my favorite way is plain.
