Ingredients:  
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 pound dates, pitted and chopped

Directions:
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Lightly grease and flour one10 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 1/2 to 3 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.
