The Cake Slice Bakers Present...Cold Oven Pound Cake.











Well, I haven't participated in The Cake Slice Bakers in quite a few months....This month's tho, I couldn't refuse....Cream Cheese Pound cake that's starts off in a cold oven. I've been wanting to try this method for a while...so perfect opportunity to try it out.


The original recipe calls for fresh grated ginger, which I didn't have....so I used grated orange peel instead. Then I drizzled the top of the cake with a lemon/orange glaze. I brought the cake to work (actually, the cake was still warm when I brought it to work) and it was devoured within an hour.....Would love to know how this cake sits, and what kind of texture it has when it's thoroughly cool.


Anyways, verdict....The cake was delightful. Full of taste, moist....yummy. I will definitely make this one again.

  2. Oh, I like your orange and lemon version (much better than ginger!).
    I also really like your Bundt tin - a very elegant looking cake. Lou.

  3. This cake sounds like my grandmother's cake. I might have to give this a try since she doesn't actually measure ingredients.

  4. Love that you did a lemon/orange combo! It looks so fluffy and delicious :) I left out the ginger as well because I simply don't like it.
