3 1/2 cups
dates, pitted and chopped
orange slices candy, chopped
fresh orange juice
My mother made this every Christmas since the 1960's. A few slight differences - her recipe called for pecans instead of walnuts, 2 tablespoons of grated orange peel, and only 8 oz. of dates; it was baked at 325. She always used a large (16 x 5 x 5) loaf pan. In recent years, I've been the one who bakes it each December. The cake always collapsed when the glaze was poured over it, so a couple of years ago, I tried heating the glaze in the microwave first. It works! The cake remains full size.
Delicious..... Had it first hand and Glenda was kind enough to share the recipe.
