strawberry cream cheese pound cake 

Print Friendly and PDF

I love a good pound cake.  During strawberry season, I will usually make a pound cake, mash up some macerated strawberries and put it on top of the cake with some whipped cream.  I feel like that is heaven, and all is needed for a simple little treat.  Maybe that's because my parents did that growing up!  
Anyways, I saw this recipe posted on Taste of the South and knew I had to make it.  I've only changed a few things and I think you will love it!
