Lemon Cream Cheese Pound Cake



1 1/2 cups butter, softened

3 cups sugar

1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened

6 large eggs

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon lemon extract

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 jar Lemon Curd



Preheat oven to 350° F.

Beat butter at medium speed with a heavy-duty electric stand mixer until creamy. Gradually add sugar, beating at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add cream cheese, beating until creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until blended after each addition.

Gradually add flour to butter mixture. Beat at low-speed just until blended after each addition, stopping to scrape bowl as needed. Stir in lemon and vanilla extracts.

Pour one-third of batter into a greased and floured 10-inch (14-cup) tube pan (about 2 2/3 cups batter). Dollop 8 rounded teaspoonfuls of lemon curd over batter, and swirl with wooden skewer. Repeat procedure once more, ultimately topping with the remaining third of batter.

Bake at 350° F for 60 – 70 minutes, or until a long wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 to 15 minutes. Remove from pan onto wire rack and cool completely (about 1 hour).

Drizzle with lemon glaze (recipe below). Top with candied lemon slices (recipe below).
