  • Place oranges in a large saucepan, cover completely with cold water and bring to the boil over high heat. Cover with baking paper and a plate to weigh oranges down, then cook until oranges are soft (2-2½ hours). You may need to top up with extra water to keep oranges covered. Drain, cool, then remove and discard calyx and seeds from oranges and coarsely chop.

Pour into a buttered and baking paper-lined 22cm-diameter spring-form pan and bake until golden an inserted skewer withdraws clean (50 minutes). Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes, then release sides of pan and cool completely.
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, for orange-blossom yoghurt, combine ingredients in a bowl and refrigerate until required.
  • 05
