Cold Oven Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Cold Oven cake?? Never attempt to bake a cold oven cake before. I would love to give it a go and see how it goes!! 
您有尝试过烤蛋糕不预热烤箱吗?? 我呢!!就是想尝试做这个免预热烤箱的乳酪磅蛋糕, 看看效果如何??

Guess what?? I baked twice...the first baked i used a heart shape bundt baking pan and 2 small silicone cup cake mould. These cakes turn out to be good but something happen. When i unmould the heart shape cake it dropped out and break into two:o but the cake taste really good. So i decide to bake another time.
这食谱我做了两次..第一次做,用了一个心形和2个小杯. 当在脱模时蛋糕被我不小心摔破了:( 就不给你看丑丑的了.. 第二次就做了一个心形和一个小长条的蛋糕. 这次我自己很满意. 我用了Mich所用的食谱. 她把杯的量转换到克的量了,简单多了. 谢谢她!!

This is the second baked which i am impressed, a cold oven cake turn out to be a really nicely brown, soft and delicious cake. Whereas the first cake is taste nice only that it doesn't brown nicely and it is a bit dense. 
虽然第一次有意外不很理想不过第二次可就很满意了..
原来, 免预热烤箱烤出来的蛋糕也可以这么松软好吃!! 我家的大小宝贝都爱爱爱..:D
This is the freshly baked from a cold oven...免预热烤箱的两蛋糕 '出炉了'~

待凉了..切开看看...好好吃呢!! 带着橙的香气还有奶油乳酪的味道~

The second baked i used a heart shape bundt baking pan and a loaf pan. The recipe call for lemon zest but i am out of lemons so i replace the lemon with orange. This time I am following Mich's recipe which she have done the conversion from cups to gms. Thanks to her :D

The first baked i use lemon zest and lemon glaze but for the second baked i run out of lemon so i used orange..:p
第一次烤时我用了柠檬可是第二次我却用了香橙因为我家的柠檬缺货了..:p



This recipe is a keeper. I will bake this again and again. 
这食谱值得一试,只要你试了我肯定你会爱上又会再做哦:D

Now back to this Cold Oven Cream Cheese Pound Cake..

Cold Oven Cream Cheese Pound Cake (Half recipe for 1 5 inches heart shape bundt baking pan and 1 loaf pan size 16cm x 7cm)
From Cake Keeper Cakes by Lauren Chattman



Ingredients

  • 115 g of cake flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 113 g softened unsalted butter
  • 113 g softened cream cheese
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar (reduced to 1 cup sugar)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla essence (i did not add this)
  • 3/4 tbsp freshly grated ginger (i did not add this)
  • 1/2 tbsp freshly grated lemon zest (i used freshly grated orange zest)
Method
  • Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position.  Butter and flour a 12-cup Bundt pan.  
  • Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.  Beat butter, cream cheese, and sugar in a large bowl until fluffy, about 3 minutes.  Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition and scraping down sides of bowl as necessary.  Beat in vanilla, ginger, and lemon zest. 
  • With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the flour.  When all of the flour has been added, mix for 30 seconds on medium.  
  • Pour batter into prepared pan and place in cold oven.  Turn oven to 325 and bake until cake is golden, 65 to 80 minutes (I baked my loaf for about 60 mins). Check for doneness with long wooden skewer.  Cool cake in pan for 15 minutes, then invert onto a cooling rack and cool completely before slicing.

Lemon Glaze
This is from Mich of Eat a Piece of Cake

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup icing sugar 
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
Method
  • Mix the icing sugar and lemon juice together till you achieve desired consistency and drizzle over cake. Add more icing sugar if it isn't thick enough. 
**I change the above lemon glaze to orange glaze. I added too little icing sugar as you can see my glaze is not white colour. It is just light and  nice :D

    Sorry for my late visit as I was caught up with Australia Day long weekend... Your pound cake look fantastic and glad that you made it for this bake-along! I was checking out the links for your post and was worried at first that you might not be able to write this post on time...

    Thanks for publicize our events via Chinese language! I'm quite with Chinese as you can see in my lost translation post with my QQ bread... ha ha ha! No worries about the event... there will be participation.... Me at least! LOL!
