One of the benefits of being a Carrol Electric customer is the free subscription to the cooperative's monthly magazine Arkansas Living. Recipes from great Arkansas cooks is one of my favorite magazine features. I love collecting these recipes and will be adding Blueberry Cream Cheese Pound Cake. This delicious cake recipe was submitted by Doris Houser of Lockesburg and featured in the March 2017 issue. Many thanks to Doris for sharing this delicious dessert recipe.
This turned out to be a perfect and quick recipe for an impromptu get together with family and friends.
Of course, you must add that huge dip of vanilla
ice cream for the perfect topping!
