Cold Oven Pound Cake Recipe

  • 1 cup margarine
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  1. Do not preheat oven. Grease and flour a 10 inch tube pan.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Beat in the flour alternately with the milk. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  3. Place cake in cold oven, then set the temperature to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Bake for 90 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely.
