This recipe came from my mother-in-law, I have no idea where she obtained the recipe. My entire family loves this cake and I only make it at Christmas so before Thanksgiving everyone starts asking me if I am making it this year.

How to Make Orange slice cake

Step-by-Step

  1. chop orange slice candy, add chopped dates and nuts stir in 1/2 cup flour (this keeps the ingredients from sticking together and sinking to the bottom of the pan)
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees, cream sugar, eggs, & butter together then add buttermilk and mix just until blended, add flour 1 cup at a time mixing well on low speed until all flour is incorporated then add candy, date and nut mixture folding into batter until well mixed. this is a thick batter. Bake in a well greased bunt pan or in loaf pans (bake time is shorter in loaf pans)
  3. After removing cake from oven while still hot mix powdered sugar and orange juice together and pour over cake, cover and place in refridgerator for 24 hrs. If baked in bunt pan after 24 hrs remove from fridge and invert on a cake plate at room temp until cake comes loose from bunt pan. Do not try to force this process your cake will break into pieces.
