A popular cake, made with orange juice, orange candy, and coconut. Cook Time: 3 hours Total Time: 3 hours Ingredients:
1 cup butter or margarine 2 cups sugar 4 eggs 1 teaspoon soda 1/2 cup buttermilk 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 pound chopped dates 1 pound chopped orange slice candies 2 cups chopped pecans 1 1/4 cups flaked coconut (1 can, 3 1/2 ounces) 1 cup fresh orange juice 2 cups confectioners' sugar
I would sub some of the butter with applesauce, and use low fat buttermilk, egg substitute and cut the sugar by using Stevia or at least cut to 1 cup and taste the batter for sweetness. and remember that the frosting will add some sweetness. Oh, I found this and more recipes for this cake just typing in the name in Yahoo search and up popped a list of recipes. Happy Holidays
