Do no preheat the oven. This
is called "Cold Oven Pound Cake" because it goes in a cold oven.
Grease and flour the bottom,
sides, and tube of a 9-inch tube cake pan.
Cream the butter and sugar
until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix well after each egg.
Add the orange juice and orange zest.
On slow speed stir in the four
and heavy cream alternating each. Add the vanilla.
Pour the batter into the
prepared pan and put in a cold oven. Set the oven temperature to 325
degrees F. Begin timing now and bake the cake for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
Test to see if cake is done by inserting a toothpick in the center of the
cake. If the toothpick comes out clean, the cake is done. Cool cake in the
pan for about 30 - 40 minutes. Then turn on a cake plate.
In a small bowl mix all the
ingredients for the orange glaze icing. Drizzle the glaze over the cake.
