The instruction how to make Luscious custard pots with sweet oranges
- Preheat oven to 180u00b0C. Combine the cream and milk in a large saucepan and heat over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until just simmering. Remove from heat and cool for 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, place the egg yolks, caster sugar, cinnamon and vanilla essence in a medium mixing bowl and beat with electric beaters until thick and creamy. Add the cream mixture and stir to combine.
- Pour mixture into eight 125mls (1/2-cup) ramekins. Place ramekins into a baking dish and add enough water to the dish to reach half-way up the sides of the ramekins. Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or until just set. Remove ramekins immediately from the baking dish and place in the fridge.
- Meanwhile, to make the sweet oranges, juice 1 of the oranges and reserve the juice. Peel the rind from the three remaining oranges using a vegetable peeler. Remove the white pith from the rind and cut rind into thin strips and reserve. (Alternatively, use a zester.) Remove all the white pith from the oranges and cut oranges into lcm- thick slices. Place in a bowl and set aside until required.
- Combine the sugar, reserved orange juice and water in a medium saucepan and stir over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil, reduce heat to medium and add the reserved orange rind strips. Simmer gently, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until syrupy. Remove from the heat and add the reserved orange slices.
- One hour before serving, remove the custard pots from the fridge to bring to room temperature.
- Place 2-3 orange slices on top of each custard pot. Spoon over some of the syrup and decorate with the orange rind. Serve the custard pots accompanied by the almond bread.
