DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F; line 2 8x4 loaf pans with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat butter with sugar until mixture is fluffy.
  • Next, beat in eggs, 1 at a time, then stir in orange rind.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda and powder, and salt.
  • Stir dry mixture into butter mixture alternately with buttermilk (dry, buttermilk, dry, buttermilk, finally dry).
  • Into this batter, stir in dates, cranberries and almonds just until combined.
  • Scrape batter into the two prepared loaf pans and bake in the centre of preheated oven until a tester comes out clean, about 75 minutes.
  • Turn out onto cooling racks and cool completely.
  • You could now wrap cakes in heavyduty foil and freeze for up to one month, if you wish.
  • To make icing, beat butter with just 1/4 cup of the icing sugar, then beat in orange juice.
  • Beat in remaining sugar until icing is smooth.
  • Spread icing over tops of both cakes.
