ISO Twelfth Night / King Alfred Dark Fruitcake Recipe!

I have lost my favorite dark fruitcake recipe, published in the Tampa Tribune in the 1970s. I have googled relentlessly! What distinguishes this recipe is that is uses honey as well as sugar, and it uses orange juice! It is a dark fruitcake with lots of spices, grated citrus zest, glaced or candied lemon and orange peel and citron, and little if any glaceed cherries or pineapple. It also includes nuts and dried fruits.
I don't remember if this was part of the recipe, but I usually iced it with marzipan.

Any help would be vastly appreciated!
