cream cheese pound cake

Happy Birthday America! To celebrate, I wanted to make something traditional for the office. And what more true blue to American culture than pound cake?

Do you all know why its called pound cake? Typically, it is made of a pound of each of four ingredients: flour, eggs, butter, and sugar. Can't get any more simpler than that! I ended up making one with a bit of twist - cream cheese.
