Minutes 5 mins


Serving Change
  • 6
    full cream milk
  • 1/2
  • 1
    white bread flour
  • 50
  • a pinch of salt
  • zest of one orange
  • a cinnamon stick


5 mins
Add the milk to a pot, and then add your cinnamon stick.
Bring to a medium high heat, careful not to let the milk boil.
While that is heating up, add the flour and a pinch of salt to a mixing bowl.
Add the butter and start rubbing it into the flour with your hands.
When it is ready you will see it looks like yellow crumbs of varying sizes.
Add your sugar and stir it in with a wooden spoon.
By this time your milk should be heated up. Turn the heat down to medium and add the flour mixture to the pot.
Keep stirring as this mix could easily burn due to the sugar content.
Keep at a light simmer and remember to keep stirring.
At first it will still be very runny, but as the flour cooks the mixture will thicken. This should take about 15 to 20 minutes in total.
Half way through cooking add your orange zest and contiue stirring.
You will have to adjust the mix to your liking, add a bit more flour and butter if you would like it to be less runny.
