  2. Sift the flour, measure and sift into a bowl with the sugar, salt, baking powder, and soda. Stir in the nuts, dates, cranberries, and orange peel. Combine the eggs, buttermilk, and salad oil; stir into flour mixture until well blended. Pour into a well-greased 10- inch tube pan; bake in a moderate oven (350) for 1 hour. Let stand about 15 minutes. Remove cake from pan and place on a rack over a pan. Heat the sugar with orange juice until dissolved; pour over cake, catching several times. Set cake in a deep dish, and pour over remaining drippings.
