Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups unsalted butter softened to room temperature (3/4 cups = 1 1/2 sticks)
  • 1 (4 oz) package cream cheese softened to room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and grease a loaf pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, using your hand mixer, cream butter and cream cheese together until fluffy, about a minute.
  • Pour in sugar, eggs, egg yolks, vanilla extract, and almond extract.
  • Beat until combined.
  • Add in flour, cornstarch, and salt, and mix until *JUST* combined.
  • Pour into prepared pan and bake until an inserted toothpick comes out *ALMOST* clean (it's ok if a little sticks), about 1 hour 20 minutes - 1 hour 45 minutes.*
  • Cool in pan for 5 minutes, then remove from pan, place on cooling rack, and continue cooling until ready to serve!
  • Slice and serve with your choice of toppings! **Pictured: whipped cream, apple slices, caramel, and pecans**

Notes

*Cook time greatly varies on your oven temperature (oven temperatures aren't all the same) and how big your loaf pan is, so I'd recommend checking every 10 minutes starting at 1 hour 20 minutes. That being said with my oven and my pan, 1 hour 40 minutes was perfect!
