Fruit filled cake topped with whip cream. Yummy! My Mom, Corina Compagner, has been making this recipe for Christmas for over 30 years.

Snow on the Mountain


  • 1 cup dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 5 oranges, peeled and cut into 5 or 6 pieces
  • 3 bananas, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


    1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8 inch pan.

    2 In a medium bowl, beat together the eggs and 1 cup of sugar. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt, stir into the egg mixture. Then, stir in the dates, walnuts and vanilla. Pour into the prepared pan.

    3 Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool on the pan on a wire rack. When the cake is cooled, break into bite sized pieces. Stir the cake pieces together with the oranges, bananas and remaining sugar. Press into a medium sized bowl and chill for several hours.

    4 Invert cake onto a serving plate. Whip the heavy cream with the confectioners; sugar and vanilla until stiff. Spread over the entire cake.
