This makes a large tube pan cake.  Slice it thin and serve like a shortcake.

 

  • Preheat oven to 300°F.
  • Grease and flour tube pan
  • Use an electric mixer to mix both butter and cream cheese until creamy.
  • Gradually add sugar and beat for 5 minutes, then add eggs one at a time, allowing each to incorporate before adding more. Stir in vanilla.
  • Sift flour and salt and add gradually to the mixer, beating until well blended.
  • Place 2 cups water in an ovenproof container on the rack in the oven next to the cake.
  • Bake cake at 300 for an hour and 35-45 minutes, or until a toothpick can be removed cleanly.
  • Place pan on a wire rack and cool for 15 minutes, then remove the cake from the pan and complete cooling on the wire rack.
