Chilled Orange Cake

    4 hours 30 minutes

    This is a great no-cook dessert you can make for the hot days of summer. It's also a good side dish to go along with a barbecue.

    Delicious! Adults at my party loved it; kids, not so much. I used fresh-squeezed oj but I won't in the future--I don't think anyone would be able to tell the difference, and it would save $!  -  03 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Made this for guests, and noticed no one cleaned their plate...all made same comment, which I agreed, strange after taste? Maybe i did something wrong, but won't make again.  -  26 Apr 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I didn't make this into a "cake" with the lady fingers - instead I just made the filling and let it set up in little individual cups. It makes a lovely dessert. Next time I might choose to use a little more sugar - evidently my oranges were a little sour and so the result has a very strong tangy flavor. It is good, but might be better with a bit more sweetener. Overall we liked it a lot and will be making this again!  -  05 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
