Citrus Sponge Fingers

I tasted this recipe at a morning tea I went to recently and it was so yummy that naturally, I had to ask the hostess for the recipe for my recipe site. I am sure that once you have tried this one, you will be wanting to make it again and again.


1 can condensed milk ( can use the light one)
300 ml carton of thickened or whipping cream
juice 1/2 lemon
3 teaspoons gelatine
2 tablespoons just-boiled water
1 pkt sponge finger biscuits

Jelly Topping:
85 g packet orange-flavoured jelly (jello)
1 cup boiling water
2 oranges, segmented


Grease and line an 18 x 28 cm slice tin. Trim the ends of the biscuits and cut in half lengthways. Place biscuits in the base of tin, cut-side down. In a large bow, beat together condensed milk, cream and lemon juice. In a small bowl or jug, whisk gelatine vigorously into the water until dissolved. Cool slightly then beat into the milk mixture. Let mixture stand for about 10 minutes until thickened. Pour over the biscuit base and chill in refrigerator or 1 - 2 hours or set firm.
For topping, combine jelly crystals and water in bowl or large jug and stir well until dissolved then cool to room temperature. Arrange orange segments over your filling then carefully pour over the jelly. Chill for 2 - 3 hours or until set. Use a warm knife to cut into squares and then serve.
