Recipe is from Taste of Home's April/May 1999 edition. They call it a "cake", but there is no flour or cake mix. . .definitely more of a light dessert!!! This is delightful and perfect for spring/summer picnics and parties. Young and old alike love this one! NOTE: Cooking time listed is actually chill time in the fridge, not actually cooking time since this is a no bake recipe.
