This picture doesn't begin to do it justice because we had eaten most of it when I remembered I had not taken a picture. Guess that means I'll have to cook another one and update this post. Lesson learned! Don't start eating until the pictures are all taken.
She always made an orange date nut cake in a big Bundt pan. That recipe has been a favorite in our family for decades and someone always makes it at Christmas. It was my Grandmother’s version of the Christmas fruitcake.
My husband remembers the same cake as one his mother used to make. Our families are from the same county in Texas, so the recipe must have been passed around quite a bit at some point in time. When I made my gluten and dairy free version, he said it was every bit as good as hers. It is one of his favorites when it comes to gluten free baked goods.
