3-1/2 cups flour
1/2 lb dates, pitted and chopped
1 lb orange slices candy, chopped
homemade pure vanilla extract
2 TBS grated orange peel
1 cup pecans, chopped
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup fresh orange juice
2 cups homemade powdered sugar
PREHEAT oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a large loaf pan; set aside.
Cream the butter and the sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time beating after each addition.
Dissolve the baking soda in the buttermilk and add it to the egg mixture, beating well.
In a large bowl mix the flour, dates, candy, nuts and coconut.
Mix to coat. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and combine
well. Dough will be very stiff and may require mixing with your hands.
Place dough into the prepared pan.
Bake for 1-1/2 to 2 hours. Cake is done when a toothpick
inserted in the center comes out clean. Mix the orange juice and
confectioners' sugar together and heat in a small saucepan. Make a few
holes in the cake with a butter knife. Pour the glaze over the hot cake
and let cake stand in pan overnight before serving.
This orange cake recipe is a delight on a hot summer day.
