A Weekday Menu Recipe

Oranges in a Duvet    Veg   CD  DP    15mins


Serves     Cold   Vegetarian Fruit  Alcohol Desserts Gluten Wheat free  Eggless




4 Oranges

4 tbsp Grand Marnier or Cointreau

275ml/10 fl.oz. Double Cream

4 tbsp Soft Brown Sugar

Julienne strips of orange to decorate





1. Grate the zest of 1 orange into a bowl and reserve.


2. Carefully peel all the oranges, removing all the bitter white pith. Place the oranges on a plate, to catch the juice, and cut them into 6mm/ 1/4 inch thick slices. Remove any pips and extract the white core.


3. Arrange the orange slices in overlapping rows in a shallow rectangular dish. Sprinkle over the orange juice from the plate, the reserved orange zest and add the Grand Marnier or Curacao.


4. Whisk the cream until thick, then spoon over the orange slices and smooth the surface with a spatula. Chill in the fridge until required.


5. Just before serving, cover the cream with a very thin layer of brown sugar and decorate with julienne strips of orange peel.
