This pound cake is a favorite of nearly everyone in the family. It is dense, moist and rich. It freezes well and makes a wonderful gift. It’s also the only acceptable use of margarine.



3 sticks margarine

1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese

6 eggs

3 cups sugar

3 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla



Cream butter and cream cheese together. Add sugar, eggs and vanilla, and mix well. Gradually add flour and salt, and mix well. Bake in a Bundt pan at 325 for 90 minutes. The cake can be garnished with sifted powdered sugar or a simple citrus glaze: confectioners sugar and fresh lemon or orange juice mixed together.
