Wow I was hesitant to try this because it was not yet rated but I am so glad I did! I made a couple of changes not because of the taste but I was making it for my Aunt who loves chocolate and orange together. I made it as the recipe states and added some grated Terry's Chocolate Orange on top of the cake layers and garnished the top with chocolate orange sections and mandarin sections. You could go a step further and use chocolate cake instead of the angel food cake but nothing says spring like angel food cake so i used it anyway. What a refreshing dessert and a nice change from the traditional trifle i have to make my husband since he is British. Great recipe!!! I wish we had taken a picture but it was eaten up so fast I didn't get a chance.
I've made this trifle 4 times now. Everyone loves it and asks for the recipe! I use "not from concentrate" OJ and I also add about a teaspoon of orange zest to the egg mix. I have added dark chocolate which is also delicious. Once I even found a chocolate angel food cake to add to it.
A nice change from the usual trifle I make. I layered it differently cake fruit and then the custard and decorated the top with chocolate curls. The custard really is the star of the show and I have plans to use it in other ways. Possibly in tart shells with fruit on top for Christmas. Thankyou for a lovely recipe ChefBeth.
