Sometimes, we just need a little something to make us smile. Sprinkles make me smile. Sprinkles inside of a delicious cake ... well they really make me smile!

You may have noticed I haven't posted for awhile. My intention was to post twice a week here in addition to my other blog, but that didn't quite happen. I have been feeling very overwhelmed the past few weeks. I know it's just a phase, but it's still kind of a bummer knowing there are never enough hours in a day to do all of the things you need to do.

One of the ways I cope with stress is by baking .... after the past few weeks, I really wanted to make and share something fun! This Funfetti Pound Cake was just the thing to put a smile on my face!

This cake, y'all. This cake. It is just perfect. I love seeing the little flecks of color peeking out of the cake. Delicious? Yes. Easy? Yes. Should you make it?! Yes!! Yes!! What are you waiting for?!

by eat . drink . yum
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 20 minutes
Yield: 16 servings

Ingredients
    For the cake:
    • 1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
    • 1½ cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
    • 3 cups granulated sugar
    • 6 large eggs, at room temperature
    • 3 cups cake flour
    • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
    • ½ cup sprinkles
    For the glaze:
    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • 2-3 tbsp. milk
    • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
    • Sprinkles (for garnish), optional

    Instructions

    1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease and flour a bundt pan; set aside.

    2. In a large bowl, cream the butter and cream cheese until smooth. Gradually add the sugar and beat until fluffy.

    3. Add the eggs one at time, beating well after each addition. Add the flour and mix until well combined. Stir in the vanilla. Fold in sprinkles.

    4. Pour the batter into prepared pan. Bake for one hour. Test cake with a toothpick inserted near the center to test if it comes out clean - you may need to bake up to an additional 20 minutes, depending on your oven. (Note - keep an eye on the cake and check often if it needs to cook longer).

    5. Remove from the oven and let cool in pan for 20-30 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.

    6. Once cooled, make the glaze by stirring together the powdered sugar, vanilla and 2 tbsp. of the milk. Add more milk if a thinner glaze is desired. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cake and immediately top with extra sprinkles. Let glaze set before serving.
