Orange Slice Cake

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1 cup butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup buttermilk
3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 pound chopped dates
1 cup chopped nuts
1 pound chopped orange slice candy
1 cup of flaked coconut
1 cup fresh orange juice
2 cups confectioners sugar

Instructions

Cream butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Dissolve soda in milk; add to creamed mixture. Place flour in a large mixing bow; add dates, nuts and candy. Stir to coat. Add flour mixture and coconut to creamed mixture. This makes a very stiff dough that should be mixed by hand. Place in a greased 13-by-9-inch cake pan. Bake at 250 degrees F. for 2-1/2 to 3 hours. Combine orange juice and confectioners sugar; pour over hot cake. Let set in pan overnight.
