Strawberry Swirl Cream Cheese Pound Cake

“This recipe caught my eye in the latest issue of Southern Living and I immediately had to try it. Wonderfully delicious! My notes: although the instructions stated to bake the cake for 1 hour 10 minutes, my cake had barely begun to rise by this time. I had a total bake time of 1 hour 35 minutes before the cake tested done.”
