Recipe by Chamar Hardy
A little tweaking on this box cake recipe and nobody will ever guess that this was not a scratch Berry Pound cake. The smooth texture added by the cream cheese, combined with the sweet flavor from the berries, makes this one of the best berry pound cakes I have ever made.
1 box Butter flavored cake mix
8 ounces Cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Oil
2 cups Berries (blueberries, mixed berries, etc.)
Oven Temp ~ 325°
Baking Time ~
Pan Type ~ 10 inch tube pan
Mix together the cake mix, cream cheese, oil and eggs. Fold in berries, pour into a prepared pan. Bake berry pound cake until toothpick comes out clean. I have used frozen blueberries (12 ounce) and mixed berries (16 ounce). My family likes the mixed berries just fine. I have topped this pound cake with a vanilla powdered sugar glaze.
Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?
Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.
Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.
And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!
