Christmas Tree Loaf Cake Recipe
2 1/4 cups Pillsbury Best™ All Purpose Flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup (6oz) cream cheese, softened
Preheat oven to 325°F.
COMBINE flour and salt in small bowl; set aside. Beat butter and cream cheese with electric mix about 60 seconds or until smooth. Add sugar gradually; beat on medium-high speed 5 minutes or until mixture is light and fluffy.
BEAT in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla extract. Fold in flour just until combined (do not overmix). Divide batter in half and dye on half green. When dividing batter, you want slightly more uncolored batter than colored batter.
LIEN an 8x8 square pan with parchment paper and spray with non-stick baking spray. Spread green better evenly onto the sheet pan. Bake 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Let cool completely.
CUT tree shapes out of the green cake and set aside. Grease a 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 loaf pan and fit it with a parchment paper sling. Spoon half the remaining batter into the cake pan. Line the trees up in the center of hte cake and cover with remaining batter (making sure to not over fill the pan). Bake 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the side and top comes out clean. Let cool completely.
FILL piping bag with frosting. Pipe frosting on top and sprinkles crushed holiday cookies. Slice and enjoy!
