A Great Recipe for the Holidays or Any Day!!

After searching through hundreds of recipes, I came upon this one and it took me back to my mom's kitchen,wonderful aromas trailing throughout the house and a cake recipe that was popular throughout our town....well that is if it came from the kitchen of my mom! If you are a hubber who follows recipes, this one will not disappoint!!

3 cups sifted all purpose flour, 1 tsp. baking soda, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 2 cups sugar, 3 eggs, 1 1/4 cups Crisco oil, 1 tsp. vanilla flavoring, 1/4 cup orange juice, 2 cups grated peeled apples, 1 cup chopped nuts, 1 cup flaked coconut

Sift flour, baking soda and cinnamon together. Combine sugar, eggs, oil, vanilla and orange juice in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until well mixed. Fold in apples, walnuts and coconut. Pour in well greased and floured bundt pan. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 1/2 hours or until done when touched. Remove cake from pan to serving plate with raised edges. Puncture cake all over with a toothpick or skewer. Spoon hot buttermilk sauce over warm cake until sauce is gone.Let stand about an hour before serving.
