Wonder why it calls for both margarine AND butter. I'm going to have to try this. I like making loaf cakes since it's easy to freeze that way. Thanks!

Ginger, I've no idea unless who ever wrote the recipe decided it was more cost effective to use some margarine instead of all butter??
Good cake though.

I never started a cake in a cold oven, either.

Marlen's Cuban Bread is started in a cold oven and that was what reminded me of this recipe. Works very well and I like this cake better than a sour cream pound cake. (Keith prefers the latter though).

This sounds interesting. I have some brandied peaches that will go well with this.
Thanks, Roselin!

I saved it. Made the raspberry cream cheese coffeecake this morning so maybe I'll try it next weekend.

I have a cold oven pound cake recipe that is very similar and very good. I have always wondered about the cold oven, but it always turned out perfect.

Here's a third recipe for comparative purposes. This recipe was given to me by my husband's ex-MIL. She demonstrated what a classy lady she is by not leaving out any ingredients!

3 cups sugar
1 cup butter
6 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups cake flour (measured after sifting)
1/2 pint (unwhipped) whipping cream

Cream the sugar and butter together. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well. Add the vanilla. Mix the flour and whipping cream in together, a little of each at a time. Pour into either a (greased/floured) tube pan or two (greased/floured) loaf pans. Put into a cold oven and bake at 300* for 1 hour, 25 mins.

Greetings ! Faye's COPC differs from my Great Aunt's in the baking powder; as my Aunt did not use BP. This recipe has been lost until I found Faye and this site.
Special Thanks to Faye.

Hope 2 C ya'll more in the future!
