You're As Sweet As Pie

My Grandmother’s Pound Cake

Growing up, my sister and I always looked forward to my Grandmother’s cake. She would let us know ahead of time when it was made just so we can prep ourselves for it. If you’re asking, yes it is that good! I wanted to share the recipe so everyone else can have a taste for themselves.

The ingredients you will need are as follows:

1 Box of Pound Cake Mix preferably Betty Crocker

4 eggs

1 stick of butter slightly salted

1 8 ounce of cream cheese

1 box of powdered sugar (1lb)

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/4 cup of sugar saved for topping

Preheat the oven to 350 before you get started so it’s all prepped and ready.

You will need two separate mixing bowls as well.

First Layer:

In a bowl, you will need one soft stick of butter (room temp), cake mix, and two eggs. Mix it until very smooth.

Second Layer:

In another bowl, mix room temp cream cheese, powdered sugar, two eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix until very smooth.

Spread first layer (cake batter mix) in greased pan, making sure it is all spread evenly. Pour the second layer on the top, making sure it is smooth. Bake at 350 degrees for around 35-40 minutes or until brown.

Cool on an oven rack for 20 minutes and then put it in the fridge. When it is real cold, cut into small pieces and then sprinkle 1/4 cup of powdered sugar on top!

The following pictures are in order of the recipe. Enjoy!
