Pour the batter into the ramekins and put them on a baking sheet in the oven. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and unmold onto serving plates.
While the cakes are in the oven, make the burnt orange caramel and maple mascarpone cream: Cook the orange juice and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until it is a dark caramel. Then, separately, mix together the mascarpone, heavy cream, and maple syrup.
Spoon the orange caramel around the warm cakes and drizzle the maple cream on top.
