DirectionsPreheat oven to 300 degrees F. Lightly grease and flour one 10 inch tube pan.In a mixing bowl, cream margarine and granulated sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.Dissolve baking soda in buttermilk and add to the creamed mixture.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.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.
