Directions

  1. Sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 cup orange juice and let stand. Oil a 10 inch tube pan.
  2. Beat the egg yolks with 3/4 cup sugar. Beat in lemon juice and remaining 1/2 cup orange juice. Transfer to a small saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and stir in gelatin mixture.
  3. Beat the egg whites with 3/4 cup sugar until stiff. Fold hot custard into egg whites. Fold in cake pieces and pineapple. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Place cherry halves with a spoon throughout the mixture. Chill in refrigerator overnight.
  4. In a chilled bowl, whip cream, green food coloring and 2 tablespoons sugar with an electric mixer until stiff. Serve unmolded dessert with whipped cream.

I enjoyed this recipe. I didn't love it, but that is just my taste. I still gave it 5 stars because those at the picnic who like a cool citrus dessert enjoyed it a lot. I baked my angel food from a Betty Crocker angel food cake mix because I think it is so much better than store-bought. I used orange juice concentrate (straight from the can, thawed & undiluted; I do this whenever a recipe calls for orange juice if I don't have fresh because I think this gives a great clean orange flavor). I would have enjoyed more pineapple the next time I make it--perhaps tidbits or even crushed. I was leary about folding in the hot custard to the whipped whites, but it worked nicely without any hiccups. The recipe worked beautifully, and it practically dropped out of the pan when unmolding which was a welcome surprise. The cook time on the custard took me about 10 minutes. Thanks for sharing.
