Ingredients

1 c
butter
2 c
sugar
4
eggs
1/2 c
buttermilk
1 tsp
baking soda
3 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1 lb
dates, pitted & chopped
1 lb
orange slice candy, chopped
2 c
pecans, chopped
1 1/3 c
coconut
2 Tbsp
orange zest
1 c
orange juice
2 c
confectioners' sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Lightly grease and flour one 10 inch tube pan.
2
In a mixing bowl, cream margarine and granulated sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
3
Dissolve baking soda in buttermilk and add to the creamed mixture.
4
Place flour in a large bowl and add dates, orange slices, and nuts. Stir to coat each piece.

Add flour mixture and coconut to creamed mixture. This makes a very stiff dough, so it will be necessary to stir with a wooden spoon.
5
Pour batter into the tube pan. Bake for 2 hours.

As soon as cake comes from oven, combine the orange juice and confectioners sugar and pour over hot cake. Let stand in pan overnight.
