1 ts Baking soda
1 ts Salt
1 1/3 c Buttermilk
1 c Chopped dates
1 c Chopped walnuts

1/4 c Orange juice
1/2 c Powdered sugar
2 tb Grated orange rind

1.Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, beat well.
2.Combine dry ingredients and add alternately with the buttermilk. Fold in walnuts, dates and orange rind.

I've copied and pasted this. Thanks for putting it in.
Sounds great to add to my neighborly bread baking for the holidays.
