  • 2 oranges cut in half
  • ½ cup sugar


  • Cut each orange in half. Use a sharp knife to cut around the orange's insides to separate them from the rind. Cut diagonally along the internal lines that separate the orange slices to loosen them. Let any excess orange juice drip off.
  • Place the orange face down in a bowl of sugar to make a thick sugar coating on the top of the fruit. Use the brûlée torch to caramelize the sugar, but not burn it. Keep the torch about a half inch away from the sugar and move in a continuous circular motion.
  • Let the topping cool for a minute before cracking into it with a spoon. Serve right away and enjoy!
