Best Strawberry Pound Cake With Cream Cheese (Homemade)

A strawberry cream cheese pound cake that is (IMHO) the best bundt cake I’ve made this year. 

If you’re looking for some delicious recipes now that strawberry season is here, look no further.

This is a dense, moist cake with lots of fresh strawberries peeking out. We love our pound cake naked.

But not to worry, if you really want a strawberry glaze or topping, I’ve also included a link to my famous Strawberry Sauce.  

Just in case you’re looking for a little extra somethin somethin .

So let’s get started!

So before we get into the ingredients, I wanted to take a moment to make sure you have all the baking equipment we’ll use.

Nothing fancy to be sure, but I know that it really bugs me when I start to make a recipe and I don’t have everything I need!

If you’re just starting out baking or even if you’ve been baking for years and need a refresh, be sure to check out my post about setting up your own baker’s pantry.

I talk about the basics – from ingredients to baking utensils, pans and nice to haves. 

So for this recipe you will need a bundt pan.  There are so many out there, I love the shapes and designs.

Bundt pans are great cake pans because they make cakes big enough to feed a crowd, and that makes this strawberry recipe perfect for potlucks and picnics.

Tips for making this delicious strawberry pound cake 

Use fresh berries

Sprinkle a little flour on the berries so they won’t sink to the bottom of your cake

Let your cream cheese and butter soften 

Use an electric mixer or stand mixer on low speed, scraping the sides of the bowl as you mix Let the cake cool completely before you invert it 

Time Saver Tip: 

Gather all of your ingredients, pans, mixer, measuring cups and spoon before you get started. Measure out the ingredients you will need, sift flour so that all you have to do is add them to your mixing bowl!
