Recipe by Mizzy
READY IN: 1hr 20mins




  • Preheat oven 325 degrees, butter a 9inch springform pan.
  • whip egg whites with 3/4 cup sugar ntil very stiff.
  • Put aside combine yolks, remaining sugar (1/2 cup), flour, vanilla, sour cream, cream cheese, and 1/2 of the instant pudding powder, and mix until smooth.
  • I use the mixer for this.
  • gently fold whipped whites into cheese mixture and add the orange peel.
  • pour into prepared pan, and bake until top is almost golden but not quite, and the cake is quite firm.
  • In my oven it takes about 40-50min.
  • Remove from oven and let rest.
  • Cool completely.
  • I normally cool overnight before topping, best to keep in the fridge.
  • to prepare topping-- whip milk+cream+remaining pudding powder until stiff.
  • Pour over the cake and keep in the fridge.
  • Before serving you could top with berries or other fruits sprinkled with powder sugar.
  • It is best to serve this cake at room temperature and I normally take it out of the fridge at least an hour before serving.
