Orange Slice Cake Recipe
This old fashion Orange Cake Recipe is made with orange candy, dates, coconuts, and nuts.
ORANGE SLICE CAKE
1 lb. orange slice candy, chopped
2 cups pecans, coarsely chopped
8 oz. package pitted dates, chopped
1 can (3 1/2 oz.) flaked coconut
3 1/2 cups sifted plain flour
2 sticks butter
2 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup buttermilk
Dredge candy and fruits in one cup of the flour. Set aside. Cream butter, sugar, and salt together until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Stir baking soda into buttermilk. Mix in rest of flour and buttermilk alternately, to creamed mixture, starting and ending with flour.
Fold in dredged candy and fruits. Pour batter into a well greased and floured tube pan.
Bake in a preheated oven at 250 F. for 2 1/2 hours. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes. Remove from pan and pour on hot glaze.
It is a fruit cake recipe. When whipped up, baking in the oven, it brings us that nostalgia we want to pass down, as it was to us, while we celebrate a joyous time of the year, with family and friends.
6 oz. frozen orange juice, unfrozen
2 cups powdered sugar
Mix together in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring well to blend. Remove from heat and pour on hot cake immediately. Cool.
Best to let set a couple of days before serving. That gives the glaze a chance to moisten the cake evenly.
