Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare citrus: Cut top and bottom off one orange. Set it on end. Using a large, sharp knife, slice off the peel, pith, and thin membrane enclosing the fruit, from top to bottom. Remove segments: Reserve juice. Repeat with remaining citrus. Combine fruit juices, adding enough orange juice to total 2 cups.

  • Prepare gelatin: In a small pot, heat 1 1/2 cups juice to a bare simmer. Meanwhile, sprinkle gelatin over remaining juice; allow to soften 2 minutes. Pour simmering juice over gelatin mixture; whisk to dissolve. Refrigerate to cool slightly.

  • Heat oven to 250°F. Cut cake into 1 1/2-inch slices; spread on a baking sheet. Toast until dry, turning once (20 minutes total). Cool.

  • Begin trifle: Cover the bottom of a glass bowl with cake slices (cutting pieces to fit). Sprinkle with Amaretto and orange liqueur. Layer orange segments over cake. Pour in gelatin mixture; cover bowl with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until gelatin is completely set (8 hours to overnight).
