Holiday Pound Cake

I am always looking for new recipes. I found this in a magazine, tried it, and it has since been a favorite of mine and my husband’s.

Yield: 12 to 16 servings


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cups cake flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening, and cream cheese. Gradually add sugar, beating until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, and beat well after each one.

Combine dry ingredients; add to the creamed mixture, alternating with the yogurt. Stir in extract. Pour into a greased and floured 10-inch fluted tube pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick icomes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes and remove from pan.

Additional Notes:

If you wold like, try with 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries.
