  • 8 oranges
  • 100ml water
  • 20g sugar
  • 1 vanilla pod, split and seeds scraped out
  • 50ml Maille White Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1tsp ginger powder
  • 15g flour

  • 20ml orange juice or water
  • 15g butter, melted

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (Gas mark 6-7).

  3. Boil water in a saucepan, add orange juice, sugar and vanilla seeds.
  4. Remove from the heat and add Maille White Balsamic Vinegar and ginger powder.
  5. In a bowl mix together the flour, sesame seeds, orange juice or water, melted butter and icing sugar on a slow setting (avoid getting air into the dough).
  6. On a baking tray place spoonful of the dough mix spaced apart to allow for spreading.
  7. Then bake at 200°C for 3-5 minutes, watching carefully because they tend to colour quickly.
