  1. 1 cup butter (softened
  2. 2 cups white sugar
  3. 4 eggs
  4. 1/2 cup buttermilk
  5. 1 tsp baking soda
  6. 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  7. 1 lb Sunnyland Natural Dates (pitted and chopped)
  8. 1 lb orange (slices candy, chopped)
  9. 2 cups Sunnyland Small Pecan Pieces
  10. 1 1/3 cups shredded coconut
  11. 1 cup orange juice
  12. 2 cups confectioners sugar
  1. Cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each.
  2. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Lightly grease and flour one 10 inch tube pan.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
