Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Cream Cheese Pound Cake
1 1/2 cups butter, softened at room temp
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened at room temp
3 cups sugar 
6 large eggs 
3 cups all-purpose flour 
1/8 teaspoon salt 
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tsp. freshly grated orange zest


Beat butter and cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy (do not over beat); gradually add sugar, beating well.

Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until combined. 

Sift 3 cups of flour. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended after each addition. Stir in vanilla. 
Add orange zest and stir.
Pour batter into a greased and floured 10-inch Bundt pan (I think when I made it, I made mini pans, so I cooked it for less time). 

Smooth the top of the cake or bottom of the cake (depending how you look at it) with a spatula to even it out.

Bake at 300° for 1 hour and 40 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 to 15 minutes; remove from pan, and let cool completely on wire rack.

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.
