1 - SuperValu Vanilla Pod
split lengthways, seeds removed
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4.
Grease an ovenproof dish with a little butter.
Melt 100g/3 ½ oz butter in a pan and add the orange segments from 3 oranges, sprinkle with the demerara sugar and cook for 5 – 6 minutes until the oranges are slightly caramelised. Put the oranges and sauce into the bottom of the ovenproof dish.
Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl, and add the xanthan gum.
In a separate bowl whisk together the remaining butter, caster sugar and beat until fluffy and light. It is important that the mixture is well beaten so don’t rush at this stage. Add the eggs, one by one with a little flour. Fold in the remaining flour into the batter and add the milk.
Spoon the mixture over the orange and place in a preheated oven for 30 – 40 minutes, until nice and golden. Serve with some freshly whipped cream with and sweetened with some vanilla pod seeds.
