Cold oven is a baking technique where you start baking without preheating 
the oven.  The primary use is in situations where you want to conserve fuel, 
on a boat or in the middle of nowhere.  When you are baking bread, the 
technique can increase oven spring.  For pound cake, it's usually a 
precursor to baking at lower temperature for a longer period resulting in a 
denser product.
