Found from a TOH e-newsletter submitted by J. Springer. This looks to be right up my alley for a dessert choice in the summer months. I've not personally made this one but do not want to lose the link to the recipe. Some of the cooking time is also time for chilling. ***Updated 8/2008 *** I made this cake recipe and it turned out fine. I did change one thing in that I used mandarin oranges for the navel orange in the garnishing but that was it. A big hit at our BBQ.
