DIRECTIONS

  • For the ANGEL FOOD CAKE:.
  • Combine 3/4 c sugar, matzo cake meal & orange zest in bowl.
  • Beat egg whites and salt in large mixer bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, alternating with orange juice. Beat well after each addition. Continue beating until stiff peaks form.
  • Fold in matzo meal mixture, 1/4 at a time.
  • Use 15 under-and-over strokes for each addition, slightly turning the bowl after each stroke. Fold an additional 10 strokes.
  • Pour batter into ungreased 10 inch tube pan.
  • Bake at 325 degrees 50 minutes to an hour, or until cake springs back to touch.
  • Remove from oven, immediately invert pan & cool.
  • For the ORANGE PUDDING:.
  • Combine sugar & potato starch in medium saucepan. Slowly pour in orange juice, stirring with whisk if necessary, to prevent lumps from forming. Add zest.
  • Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until mixture is smooth and thickened, about 20 minutes.
  • Cover & chill before using.
  • Can be made a day ahead.
  • PUT IT ALL TOGETHER:.
  • Cut cake in 1-inch fingers.
  • Let stand uncovered for a few hours to slightly dry out. (Trifle is usually made with stale cake.)

  • Sprinkle with 1/3 cup Sherry.
  • Arrange about 1/2 the sliced fruit on and around cake fingers.
  • Pour over 1/2 of pudding.

  • Sprinkle with more sherry.
  • Pour over remaining pudding.
  • Cover and refrigerate until fully chilled and ready to serve.
