I'm not a huge fan of cakes, frankly, I have to be in the mood for cake. But the past few days I had been craving cake, I don't know why, just really really really wanted some.
So while looking through my Bisquick cookbook my eyes landed on the Cream Cheese Pound Cake and I knew that was the one I had to have.
It's such a quick recipe to put together and it results in a delicious, light, airy, pound cake which is perfect on it's own or topped with some fruit.
