  • 4 large oranges
  • 75 g (3 oz) unsalted butter, slightly softened
  • 50 g (2 oz) caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 soft flour tortillas
  • Finely grate the rind of 2 of the oranges. Using a sharp knife, cut the tops and bottoms from all the oranges and remove the skin and pith. Hold the oranges over a bowl to collect the juice and cut out the segments.
  • Melt 50 g (2 oz) of the butter in a frying pan, add the caster sugar and 100 ml (3 1/2 fl oz) of the reserved orange juice and half the rind and cook over a medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved. Simmer for 4–5 minutes until thickened and syrupy. Stir in the orange segments to heat through.
  • Meanwhile, mix the remaining butter and orange rind with the icing sugar and cinnamon. Arrange the tortillas on a large baking sheet, then brush one side with the butter mixture. Place in a preheated oven, 200ºC (400ºF), Gas Mark 6, for 2–3 minutes or until golden. Leave to cool slightly, then cut each into 4 triangles. Spoon the oranges and syrup into bowls and serve with the tortilla triangles.
