Helen Greene


1 c. butter or margarine
2 c. sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. soda
1/2 c. buttermilk
3 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 lb. chopped dates
1 lb. chopped orange slice candies
2 c. chopped pecans
1 1/4 c. flaked coconut (1can, 3 1/2 oz.)
1 c. fresh orange juice
2 c. confectioners' sugar

Preheat oven to 250.

Cream butter or margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat well after each addition. Dissolve soda in buttermilk and add to creamed mixture.

Place flour in large bowl and add dates, chopped orange slices, and nuts. Stir to coat all pieces well. Add flour mixture and coconut to creamed mixture. Dough will be very stiff and easier to mix with hands. Put dough in a greased and floured
13 x 9 x 2 inch cake pan. Bake for 2 to 3 hours. Combine orange juice and confectioners' sugar and pour over hot cake. Let the orange slice cake stand in the pan overnight.
