  4. Spread the orange marmalalde on top of the rolled out dough.
  5. Beat together the eggs, icing sugar & the cream till the sugar is dissolved completely. Beat in the vanilla essnce. Fold in the orange & lemon zests. Pour this mixture over the marmalalde.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven at 160C for 45-50 minutes.
  7. Let the flan cool down completely to room temperature before you do the topping.
  8. For the topping, combine the sugar & water in a small saucepan. Heat till the sugar dissolves completely. Lower heat & add the orange segments & cook for 3-4 minutes. Do not stir this mixture. Strain this orange flavoured syrup & pour it on top of the pudding.
