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.

3.5 oz package instant vanilla pudding mix
1 cup milk
1 tsp homemade pure vanilla extract

Made the recipe?  I would love to see it!  Post it on my Facebook page or any social media platform and use the hashtag #misshomemade  Thanks!



NOTE:

Some of my recipes call for oil and for most of my life I used canola and vegetable oil as everyone else did.

I have changed to using organic and unrefined coconut oil, and olive oil. Organic butter and ghee is another option. Thanks!

Note: the main villains of hydrogenated oils that you want to stay away from are corn oil, soybean oil, cottonseed oil and canola oil.
