Cheese and Vanilla Bean Pound Cake with Almond Glaze:
8 onz Cream Cheese
2 sticks Butter
2 cups Sugar
2 cups cake flour with baking powder
2 tsp vanilla bean paste
2 cups Powdered sugar
2 tsp water
1 tsp almond flavor or extract
Cream the cheese and butter together. Then add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add 3 eggs first but one at the time and save the other 3 for after the flour. Add vanilla beat. Mix in the flour 1 cup at a time, do not over beat. Now add the last 3 eggs one at a time. I used a bundt cake pan. So... butter or grease your pan and fill it with the batter. Bake at 350F for about 35mins. I took it out of the oven when the toothpick almost came out clean but left it in the pan a while longer. It came out awesome and so moist.
When it was cool I placed it on a dish and made my glaze.
Mix the sugar powder with the water and flavoring, if its to runny just add more sugar and if its to stiff just add a little more water, depending on your taste.
