Almond Cream Cheese Pound Cake

I wanted something sweet last week so I went searching for a recipe that was quick and easy.  I reached for the Cake Mix Doctor cookbook and decided to make this simple cake.  I ate a piece of it warm from the oven.  It would be great served with fruit and whipped cream.
  • 1 (18 ounce) box butter recipe cake mix
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, at room temp
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Bring cream cheese to room temperature.  Place all ingredients in large mixing bowl.  Mix with electric mixer on low for one minute until all combined.  Mix at medium for two minutes.  Bake in a greased and floured 10 inch tube pan at 350°F for about 45 minutes or until cake springs back when touched.

I will definitely make this cake again.  It was light tasting, super easy and quick!

Thank you for visiting!
