Christmas Cream Cheese Pound Cake

November 4, 2021Teresa

Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2021

Christmas Cream Cheese Pound Cake is absolutely scrumptious! This luscious Pound Cake recipe includes Paradise Fruit Company’s candied pineapple in colors of green, red and gold. The icing includes pineapple extract so the pineapple flavor will really pop. It was outstanding (and so Christmasy).

Follow Me On Instagram!

Paradise sent me several different selections of candied fruit at the end of last year. However, we were in the process of moving, so all my pots, pans, cookie sheets, etc., were packed away and I couldn’t bake anything then. After moving to a new home Northwest of Dallas, we had too much going on to bake the first several months of the year. Now that the holidays are upon us, I felt it was the right time to start holiday baking with all these Paradise candied fruits.

I’ve come up with lots of different recipes, including sweet breads, cakes, muffins, cookies, brownies, a pie and even some sweet rolls! Everything has turned out way above my expectations. I used a lot of vintage and family favorite recipes from way back with a few tweaks here and there. Yum.

This is a terrific Christmas dessert for holiday parties and get togethers. Most people enjoy pineapple so it’s a win-win for everyone. The recipe includes only 7 ingredients for the cake and three for the icing so it’s relatively simple to make. The big thing you must account for with bundt cakes is they take a really long time to bake! Usually about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Make sure a knife or bamboo skewer is inserted all the way to the bottom of the cake to check for doneness. It there’s any goop on the tester, keep baking until it comes out clean.

We loved Christmas Cream Cheese Pound Cake, and adding candied pineapple made it even better! Enjoy.

Add cake flour (NOT regular all-purpose flour). It’s a lot finer in texture and bakes up better for this cake.

Wipe off excess syrup on each piece of fruit with damp paper towels. Place on paper towels to drain. (This will keep the cake its natural color rather than turning the batter a yucky color).

Bake at 350 degrees for one hour and fifteen or twenty minutes. Test for doneness by pressing a knife or bamboo skewer to the bottom of the cake pan. If the knife or skewer comes out goopy (no matter how long you’ve had the cake in the oven) the cake isn’t done. Keep baking until knife or skewer comes out clean.

Allow cake to cool in pan completely before inverting onto a plate.
