Postre anaranjado delicioso, cremoso. Estoy en amor con esto. Delicious, creamy orange dessert. I am in love with this. I did not put it in the oven to carmelize since I used hollwed out orange halves for dishes and my torch was not working. So I added a bit of grand Marnier and flambe it. LOL This will be made again and again. It is so light . I did not strain it since I wanted the zest to still be in the custard. Made for ZWT 5 Spain/Portugal region for team Zaar Chow Hounds
