I found this recipe in one of my Grandmother's stash. I think it's from the 1920's. It sounds divine, and when I get a chance I'll try it out. It looks easy enough. I'm a sucker for vintage recipes lol.

Serves:

This is a non baked cake, so, instead of cooking for 24 hrs, it's chilling

Prep:

5 Min

Cook:

24 Hr

Ingredients

1 tsp
corn starch
1 Tbsp
butter
1/2 c
sugar
1 c
scalded milk
3
eggs
1
orange, juice and rind
1
lemon rind, grated

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix the cornstarch and sugar. Pour on gradually the hot milk, and cook until it bubbles all through, stirring constantly.
2
Beat the egg yolks slightly, and add the hot mixture slowly. Cook in a double boiler for five minutes, stirring frequently.
3
Add the butter, orange juice and grated orange, and lemon rinds. Beat the egg whites into stiff peeks.
4
Fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites. Cool.
5
Use a cake tin with a removable bottom. Line the sides and bottom with lady fingers, seperated, with the rounded side towards the pan. Spread a layer of filling over the lady fingers. Repeat until all ingredients are used up.
6
Chill for twenty-four hours. Lift the bottom of the tin out with the cake, and place on a large plate. Cover the top with sweetened, flavored whipped cream. Arrange sections of orange in flower fashion on top.
