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.

How to Make No bake, Orange Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Mix the cornstarch and sugar. Pour on gradually the hot milk, and cook until it bubbles all through, stirring constantly.
  • 2Beat the egg yolks slightly, and add the hot mixture slowly. Cook in a double boiler for five minutes, stirring frequently.
  • 3Add the butter, orange juice and grated orange, and lemon rinds. Beat the egg whites into stiff peeks.
  • 4Fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites. Cool.
  • 5Use 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.
  • 6Chill 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.
