THE best pound cake

This is THE best pound cake I've ever had. Mind you I'm not even a big pound cake fan but this stuff is awesome! This recipe came from my grandma and thought I'd share. It is great warm, cold, alone, with peaches and used for strawberry shortcake.

1 8oz pkg cream cheese
3 stick butter (creamed)
3 C sugar
6 eggs
3 C flour
1tsp vanilla

Combine all ingredients adding only 1 egg at at time. Pour in tube pan. Bake 300F for about 1 1/2 hours.

I also drizzled an almond flavored thin icing over the top....just powdered sugar, almond extract and hot water.

This would make a great gift too if baked in a loaf or mini loaf pan.
