Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pound Cake

There is this cute little blog that I've been following for a while called Love and Laundry and I absolutely adore it. Not just because of the blog, but because of the girl behind the blog. She really is adorable. You guys will love her! I'll stop talking and let her introduce herself:

Hello High Heels and Grills readers! I’m Shatzi and I blog over at Love and Laundry. I’m a mom of three kiddos and I love cooking, sewing, crafting and definitely playing with my kids. But I don’t love laundry. That’s kind of a joke. I’m so excited to be here today! I’m one of Sarah’s biggest fans! She always amazes me with her delicious and simple recipes. Today I’m sharing with you a yummy fall recipe! Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pound Cake.

This is so delicious! My husband isn’t a huge fan of pumpkin and even he loved this velvety and moist cake. You can bake pound cake in a Bundt pan, but I like to do it in my bread pans.  I love pound cake because it’s more dense and smooth than a traditional quick bread. And it’s just as easy to make.
