Orange Pan Tart

Preparation & Cooking time: 6 minutes

Serves: 6 people

Ingredients
For the topping:
100g caster (superfine) sugar
125ml water
1 vanilla bean (split and seeds scraped)
2 oranges (very thinly sliced)

For the cake:
4 eggs
200g caster (superfine) sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
150g self-rising flour
140g butter (melted)
100g ground almonds

Method:

Preheat the oven to 160°C/320°F/Gas 3. To make the topping, place the sugar, water and vanilla in a 24 cm/9, 5 inch non-stick ovenproof frying pan over medium heat. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add the orange slices and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the orange is soft. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Mix eggs, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer and whisk for 8-10 minutes or until the mixture is thick and pale. Sift the flour over the egg mixture and fold through. Fold through the butter and almond meal. Pour the mixture over the orange slices and bake for 40-45 minutes or until cooked when tested with a skewer.

Turn out onto a platter to serve.
