If you like the taste of marmalade, you’ll love this dessert. Every part of the oranges, except the pips, are puréed to a bitter pulp, combined with eggs and brandy, and baked. The result is a golden creation similar in texture and appearance to a soufflé. Eat it hot or cold.


  • 2 large oranges
  • 6 eggs
  • juice of 2 more oranges
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • 3 tablespoons brandy or orange liqueur
  • 10 tablespoons sugar to taste


    Boil the oranges whole for about 1 hour until very tender. Cut open and remove the pips. Blend with the eggs, orange and lemon juice, the brandy and sugar. Bake in an ovenproof dish at 150°C/300°F/Gas mark 2 for about 1 hour, or until firm.
