  • 12 tablespoons of butter, plus 2 tablespoons (for pan)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour, plus 1 tablespoon (for pan)
  • 1 and a half teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon of salt

Cream Cheese Glaze:

  • 1 (8 ounces) package cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 and a half cups powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup of evaporated milk

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a loaf pan with two tablespoons of butter. Dust the buttered surface with one tablespoon of flour and set aside.
  2. Add the sugar and 12 tablespoons of butter into an icing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until fluffy and combined. It will take about 8 minutes to do so.
  3. Combien flour, salt, and baking powder in a second mixing bowl. Set aside.
  4. Combine the eggs, vanilla, and buttermilk. 
  5. Take the first bowl with the creamed butter. Add the wet ingredients gradually while mixing on low.
  6. When done, add the dry ingredients while mixing. Make sure not to overmix your cake batter.
  7. Transfer into the prepared pan in an even layer.
  8. Bake the cake for an hour or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Remove and set aside to cool completely.
  9. In the meantime, beat the powdered sugar and softened cream cheese. Gradually add milk and vanilla while constantly mixing. Spread over the pound cake and serve.
