LOOKING for: Orange Slice Bread

diggerb2August 5, 2008

way back when (early 70's) our neighbor used to give us a loaf of quick bread that she called orange fruit cake,

it was made with those orange slices that are like gum drops.

anybody have a recipe for something like this?

My mama used to make orange slice cake for Christmas every year. I can dig up the recipe if you want it. Let me know.

It has the orange slice candy, nuts, coconut, etc. Real good and rich.
