Let's Make It
Heat oven to 325°F.
Combine flour and baking powder. Beat cream cheese, butter, granulated sugar and 1 Tbsp. vanilla paste in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture.
Pour into greased and floured 9x5-inch loaf pan.
Bake 1 hour 20 min. or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 min. Remove from pan; cool completely on wire rack.
Mix powdered sugar, milk and remaining vanilla bean paste until blended; spoon over cake, letting glaze drip down sides of cake.
An occasional dessert can be part of a balanced diet, but remember to keep tabs on portions.
If you don't have vanilla bean paste, you can instead substitute 1-1/2 tsp vanilla extract for the vanilla bean paste in the cake, and 1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract for the vanilla bean paste in the glaze.
Adjusting Bake Temperatures for Cookware
The type of baking dish you use can affect your results. Dark coated metal pans conduct heat more efficiently than uncoated metal or glass pans, which can result in overbrowning or even burning. If using a coated metal pan, reduce the baking temperature by 25°F to combat this.
