Orange Cake

Orange Cake

1 Cup butter
3 Cups white flour
1-2 Cups sugar
1 Cup flaked coconut
4 eggs
1 Cup chopped walnuts
1/2 Cup orange juice
8 ounces chopped dates
1 teaspoon baking soda

Grease well and lightly flour two 9 x 5 x 3 inch loaf pans. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

In a large bowl cream butter and gradually beat in sugar. Add eggs one at a time and beat well after each.

Sift together flour and baking soda. Stir the dry ingredients into the butter mixture in three parts, alternating with the orange juice. Mix nuts, coconut and dates and fold gently into batter.

Pour batter into greased pans and bake for 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until golden brown. Mix together 1/2 Cup of orange juice and 1 Cup of powdered sugar and pour over cakes in pans while still hot. Cool in pans on racks. Wrap in aluminum foil when cool and freeze if possible.

Oooh, yum! I'd also try zesting the rind for an extra 'punch' of flavor!
