Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
Custard:
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange rind
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Method

In heavy saucepan over medium heat, stir sugar with 1/4 cup (50 mL) water until dissolved. Bring to boil, brushing down sides of pan with clean pastry brush dipped in cold water. Cook, without stirring, for about 5 minutes or just until syrup turns amber. Immediately remove from heat. Pour into 8-inch (2 L) round cake pan; swirl to coat bottom evenly. Set aside.

Custard: Meanwhile, in large bowl, whisk together eggs, egg yolks and sugar just until blended. Whisk in milk, then orange rind and vanilla. Pour over caramel in pan; let stand for 5 minutes.

Place cake pan in larger pan; pour in enough hot water to come halfway up side of cake pan. Bake in centre of 350°F (180°C) oven for about 45 minutes or until knife inserted in centre comes out clean. Remove cake pan from water; transfer to rack and let cool completely. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until chilled. (Can be refrigerated for up to 2 days.)

Run knife around edge of custard; place serving plate over top. Quickly invert and lift off pan.
