Share

Ingredients :

  • 1 large orange
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • ½ cup shortening
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
  • 4 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • Methods :

  • Step 1

    Squeeze the juice from the orange, and then remove the white from the peel. Place the peel, nuts and raisins in a food processor, and grind coarsely. Add the orange juice to the nut mixture.

  • Step 2

    Cream the shortening and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat the egg, and add it to the creamed mixture.

  • Step 3

    Sift together the flour, soda, baking powder, and spices. Add the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk to the creamed mixture. Stir in 3/4 of the nut mixture, and reserve the rest for the icing.

  • Step 4

    Pour batter into a greased and floured 10 inch square pan. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 1 hour. Cool.

  • Step 5

    To Make Frosting: Blend the cream and vanilla with the confectioners' sugar in a small mixing bowl. Add the remaining nut mixture and the grated orange rind. Frost the cooled cake with this icing.
