Fruit cake haters beware. This cake is much like a "poor man's" fruit cake with orange slice candy rather than candied fruit. I've used recipes similar to this one that adds pineapples, no nuts, and an entire package a coconut (great for coconut lovers). HELPFUL TIPS: Coat the candy in the flour used in the recipe before blending and this will help with the candy sticking on the side of the pan. Dip your cutting knife in warm water, flour or spray with nonstick cooking spray to prevent the candy from sticking on the knife before cutting up the orange slice candies.

My grandmother has made this same recipe for years, and it is absolutely fabulous. It has a very similar texture to a fruitcake, but it's sooo much better! The only difference in my recipe is I substitue dark raisins for the dates and pecans for the walnuts (in my family, no other nut besides pecans even exist).

This cake gets rave reviews and everyone always asks for the recipe. I added a couple tablespoons of orange marmalade to the glaze for an added orange kick....great stuff.
