Preheat your oven to 325 and prep your pan well (nonstick plus flour dusting) for nonstick. While a pound cake is usually baked in a loaf pan, I am actually a fan of the bundt pan for this recipe.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk or sift together the flour and baking powder. Set this bowl aside.
Next, in a large mixing bowl, and at medium speed, beat your butter with the cream cheese until creamy.
For the next step, we will add the dry ingredients from the first bowl to the mixing bowl. Do this by adding half of the dry ingredients at a time, stirring between additions. Then add the eggs, one at a time, stirring gently between additions as well as the extract.
Transfer the batter to the prepared baking pan and bake for 75- 90 minutes or until a toothpick comes out almost clean. The baking time can depend on your pan. Allow this to cool well- at least 20 minutes in the pan and then an hour on a cooling rack- before serving. Thus, this cake should be well cooled prior to serving.
