Welcome to my first Cake Baking Blog Hop!
The food blog community always comes up with a zillion ways to connect blogs, share content and spread more joy along the way. Bloghop is a cool new tool to share content and spread the love.
When Junia emailed last week asking a group of bakers if we’d be interested in posting a recipe together and linking up with each others’ blog to create a one-of-a-kind cake network, we agreed instantly.
The idea is simple, 8 of us are not only posting 8 super delicious cake recipes for you but we are also welcoming you to share with us your favorite cake recipes during the month of August.
What I have for you today is an absolute favorite, Cream Cheese Cinnamon Pound Cake. What I most enjoy most about this cake is the baking part. The whole kitchen fills up with the scent of cinnamon. This deliciously dense pound cake has a rich and buttery flavor which makes this perfect for just about any time of the day, month, or year.
- ¾ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
- ½ package (113 grams) cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1½ cups sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 11/2 cups all purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¾ teaspoon baking powder
- Preheat the oven to 325°F. Lightly butter a 6-cup bundt pan.
- In a medium bowl, sift flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder and salt; set aside.
- In a large bowl, butter and cream cheese beat with a mixer on medium speed until smooth and light in color.
- Add the sugar, increase the speed to high, and beat until light and airy.
- Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition and scraping down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed.
- Add the vanilla, then the flour mixture. Beat just until incorporated.
- Pour the batter into the prepared pan and shake lightly to even out the top. Bake until the cake is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the cake comes out clean, 60 to 70 minutes.
- Place the pan on a cake rack and cool for 20 minutes, then remove the cake from the pan and let it cool completely. Serve at room temperature.
- Dust with powdered sugar and serve with a dollop of whipped cream if desired.

I love baking together across the wilds of cyberspace! And this cake is just what we are crazy about! My husband loves simple but rich pound cakes for breakfast or late in the morning sunked in cold milk. I love them late in the afternoon with coffee. This is one gorgeous cake!

That looks so delicious!! I’d love a thick slice of this with hot tea. :-)
I already love cream cheese pound cake, but the addition of cinnamon makes it that much more delicious with it’s warm spiciness. Beautiful!
Love the pairing of cream cheese and cinnamon; there is a muffin place near me that offers that in a muffin…I go for it every time. I must try this.
My favorite cake is probably my favorite because the frosting is simply to die for. Cake is good too…but that frosting? Oh my.
Espresso Chocolate Cake with an Espresso, Mascarpone and White Chocolate frosting.
Now I REALLY want to make this cake but I had better get on another baked good first. You know.
Cream cheese and cinnamon= Yum! What a gorgeous cake…Bundt cakes always look so pretty! I am pretty crazy about cinnamon and almost added it to my cake, but stopped in the end :-) So happy to join you in #cakelove!

Great recipe. I tried it last night and it is delicious! I added an extra teaspoon of cinnamon. Not sure if I did something wrong, but the texture reminds me more of coffee cake than pound cake; it seems lighter. Nonetheless, it is delish! Thanks for the recipe.
Oh my gosh, I bet this did smell wonderful! Buzzed!
What a fantastic looking cake!
Cinnamon cream cheese pound cake sounds so perfect right now! I love the combination of flavors, they work so well together! I would eat this in no time :)
This cake sounds absolutely divine. Bookmarking it!
Yum your cake looks delicious. I like the changes that you made to this recipe to make it healthier. The blog hop idea is a great concept. I’d like to try it for August especially celebrating both kids birthdays. When is that post suppose to take place?
Hey Vicki! Thanks. This blog hop was in August 2011. If you’d like to join us, we have a different theme every month. :)
