    why do recipes call for plain flour and add baking powder instead of just using self rising flour?

    1. Because you can control the amount of “rising” that happens by choosing the amount of each ingredient.

    Oh I love this recipe! It’s been my go to recipe for ages. I’ve baked so many of these Southern Living Cream Cheese Pound Cakes. People go crazy for them. If anyone has any hesitation about baking it, seriously do! They’re best!! If your interested, they’re great for carving as well. Gives a really tight crumb. I’ve done one here if your interested. πŸ™‚

  3. Pound cake is one thing I have never made. Seeing the name of the recipe on Friday Flash I had to have a look with my passion for cream cheese. It looks good and seems easy to make, if I ever make pound cake this will be the recipe I use.
