  1. Stir together orange juice, eggs, and sugar in a small saucepan. Place over low heat, and stir constantly until the sugar has dissolved, and the mixture is very thick. Once thick, strain mixture into a large bowl, and stir in butter cubes until melted. Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours.
  2. Fold whipped cream into cold egg mixture until smooth. Recover and refrigerate for 3 hours.
  3. To assemble, place half of the cubed angel food cake into the bottom of a trifle bowl. Spoon on half of the whipped cream mixture, and sprinkle with half of the Mandarin oranges. Create a second layer with the remaining angel food cake, whipped cream mixture, and Mandarin oranges. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

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 an...

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...

I wish that the recipe would specify that the Orange juice was concentrate, and not just juice.

Very good! I used 1/4 cup of orange juice concentrate - just the right amount of orange flavor. I also grated dark chocolate on both layers. Will make this again for sure!

We liked this recipe but I made instant vanilla pudding and added orange extract to that, then added that into orange juice egg mixture. It disappeared in one day so I know it was well liked.

YUM! I think the key to this is the homemade custard stuff. Much better than pudding! LOVED it!

I loved this recipe. It was a big hit at our Easter dinner. Used Cool Whip, added fresh raspberries and used more orange juice in the mix. Yummy

This was easy to make and rather fun to put together, not much work for such a great tasting dessert that my family loved. Just made my second one for Easter dinner.

I've made this twice now and it's turned out excellently both times. Light and refreshing, a great dessert after a rich or heavy meal.
