Start by using your electric mixer to beat the butter and cream cheese at a medium speed or until the mixture looks creamy and delicious. Next, gradually add the sugar until the mixture appears light and fluffy. Make sure to add your eggs one at a time, and pour in the vanilla extract for that extra bit of flavor. Then, simply combine the flour and salt in a small bowl, and slowly add your butter to the batter. After each addition, beat the mixture at low speed. Pour the batter you’ve made into a greased and floured 10-inch tube pan. Bake the dessert at 300 degrees for one hour and twenty-five minutes. To finish it off, cool the cream cheese pound cake on a wire rack for about fifteen minutes. Enjoy!
