Beat the butter and cream cheese in the bowl of a cake mixer until creamy. Gradually add the sugar, beating at medium speed until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs, one at a time, beating until just blended after each addition. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 65-70 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean.
