      Beat together eggs, sugar, vanilla, orange and butternut flavorings and
   oil.  Stir together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Add 1/4 cup
   flour mixture to the coconut mixture and reserve fruit from fruit starter
   and mix well.  The batter will be stiff; it is too stiff to work, add more
   fruit or juice from the starter. Put into a greased and floured large tube
   or Bundt pan. Bake at 325~ for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Let cool in pan 15
   minutes before removing.
