  • 1/2 cup of boiling water

  • 2 teaspoons of cornflour


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and grease 6 individual ramekins with butter then dust with flour
  2. Sift the flour into a large bowl and add the brown sugar, orange zest and stir to combine.
  3. In a jug combine the milk, egg and melted butter and mix to combine. Add to the flour mixture and stir until combined before dividing between the ramekins.
