Family Recipe Friday - Granny's Orange Slice Cake

My Granny Dreher was an excellent cook. This was one of the recipes she made quite frequently, and I always loved it.

Granny's Orange Slice Cake
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
3-1/2 cups all purpose flour
4 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk [if no buttermilk, disolve 1 tsp. baking soda in whole milk]
1 bag Brach's orange slice candy
1 pkg. dates [small, or diced]
1 can coconut
2 cups nuts
Directions:eam butter, sugar and eggs. Add 3 c. flour. Flour fruit, candy and nuts with remaining flour and set aside.
Add milk to creamed mixture and flour. Fold in floured fruit, candy and nuts.
Bake 2-1/2 hours in bundt pan at 250-degrees.
1/12 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup fresh orange juice.
Put glaze ingredients in small saucepan over low heat and dissolve thoroughly. When sugar is completely dissolved, pour over cooled cake.
This is a favorite here, especially during the holidays! My dd is already asking when I will be baking it!
