Which one of these phrases is the most correct, or are both fine?

You're welcome, it has been my pleasure helping you out!

You're welcome, it has been my pleasure to help you out!

    Hello Seirup and welcome to the forum!
    I don't find either phrase natural because if people are going to use a 'pleasure' type phrase in a sentence, they could say either 'It's been a pleasure to help you (out)', or 'It's been a pleasure helping you!' I think the 'out' is unnecessary especially in a pretty formal sentence.

    On the other hand, there's the short phrase in response to thanks for helping, which is simply 'My pleasure!'.
    I expect somebody will have different view. ;)
