    I promised someone a recipe for Orange Slice Cake (the anti-fruitcake). Finally found my mom's recipe, so here it is.

    1 pound margarine
    2½ cups sugar
    4 eggs
    2 cups buttermilk
    1 teaspoon soda
    ½ teaspoon salt
    2½ cups flour

    Mix all above in order given. Dredge in 1 cup of flour. Fold the following into the above mixture:

    1 pound orange slices, chopped
    1 pound chopped dates
    1 pound chopped pecans
    1 pound cocoanut

    Bake in three lined narrow loaf pans at 275 degrees for 1¼ to 1½ hours.

    Ice while hot with:
    2 (small) cans frozen orange juice (do not dilute)
    4 cups powdered sugar

    (The only difficult part of this is dicing the orange slices. If you can, find orange slice bits. Chopping the candy quickly creates a sticky situation; I've tried using flour, water on the knife, and nothing really works well.)

    (As you can tell, this is a BIG recipe, and I like to bake lots of small loaves and freeze them for sharing or for future consumption.)
