Cream Cheese Pound Cake

I only post recipes that are AH-MAZ-ING, so trust me on this one. For starters, it's like the simplest, yummiest, most delicious pound cake EVER, and there should definitely be a made up adjective to describe it. Like... Scrumlicioucal. Which would be scrumptious, delicious, and fantastical. Fantastical?! Where did that come from?
Anyways, honestly, it's super fast to whip up, and perfect with strawberries and whipped cream. Mmmmm, I bet it would be good with chocolate frosting, too... I've gotta try that.

1 8oz. pkg cream cheese (room temperature)
1 1/2 c unsalted butter (three sticks, room temperature)
3 c sugar
6 eggs
3 c flour
2 tsp vanilla
See, what a simple list of ingredients. Ignore the fact that this includes 1 1/2 cups of butter, just pretend it's nutrient-packed, non-fat butter. Yep, there is such a thing.

Cream the butter and cream cheese together. Slowly add sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time. Slowly add flour. Stir in vanilla. Put in a greased Bundt pan. Bake @ 350 for 50 -55 minutes or until done. Let it cool for 15 min and then flip over onto a cake plate. EAT.
How great is that? Simple, right? VERY. Andddd.... sliced up strawberries and whipped cream are my favorite toppings. For homeade whipped cream, beat 2 c heavy whipping cream, 1/3 c sugar, and a teaspoon of vanilla together until stiff.
