You can any berries over this you like, whatever berries are in season.
1 – eight ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups softened butter
2 1/2 cups white sugar
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.
Grease/spray your bundt cake pan (you can put flour on it as well if you want to help prevent sticking.)
In a large 12 cup bowl, mix the butter and cream cheese until smooth.
Add the sugar and mix until it is nice and fluffy.
In a separate bowl mix the eggs. Then slowly add them in.
Add the vanilla in and mix. Then add the flour in a little at a time.
Take a spatula around the bowl to ensure everything got mixed in nicely.
Pour into your bundt cake pan and bake for about 1 hour 20 minutes.
When it starts to smell yummy, check your cake with a toothpick.If it comes out clean, then it is done. If it doesn’t, check every 5 minutes until done.
Remove and allow to cool slightly before trying to turn over the pan and get the cake out.
You may need to take a knife gently to the side if it gets stuck.
Serve in slices or cut into cubes for Strawberry Shortcake!
