ORANGE SLICE CAKE RECIPE

1 cup homemade unsalted butter
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
1/2 cup homemade buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda


3-1/2 cups flour
1/2 lb dates, pitted and chopped
1 lb orange slices candy, chopped
1 tsp homemade pure vanilla extract
2 TBS grated orange peel
1 cup pecans, chopped
1 cup flaked coconut

Glaze
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.

BEST French Vanilla Cake Recipe

French Vanilla Cake

"I have made this cake 3 times in the past 4 weeks and have been asked to make it again for St. Paddy's day and Easter! I should have it down to a science by then. It is simply delicious and I have received rave reviews! Thanks so much for posting what I consider to be the perfect vanilla cake recipe."  by Michelle


Creamy Homemade Ice Cream Recipes

Ice Cream Recipes

"Being an ice-cream addict I searched the web and tried many recipes. Not wanting those with condensed milk I was able to cut the selection right down. And THEN I found your Homemade Vanilla Ice-Cream. Not having an ice-cream maker I had to use the instructions from other recipes and then added a pinch of salt (apparently that helps with the freezing!?) and 1 heaping Tbs of Custard Powder. I also added another egg yolk. And this is absolutely perfect. I never want to go back to bought ice-cream .... in fact I find it very disappointing. So thanks for your recipe - it is an absolute hit!" by Celia on Home Page
