Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pound Cake

I love pumpkin. And I love cream cheese. So, when I saw this recipe for Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pound Cake, I knew I had to try it.

This is so delicious! My husband isn’t a huge fan of pumpkin and even he loved this velvety and moist cake. You can bake pound cake in a Bundt pan, but I like to do it in my bread pans.  I love pound cake because it’s more dense and smooth than a traditional quick bread. And it’s just as easy to make.
