1 Pre-heat oven to 175c. Roll out the pastry to fit a 9 inch spring-form flan dish (line with greaseproof paper if not spring form), pop in some baking beans and blind bake for approximately 15 mins.

2 Put the sugar into a saucepan and place on a low heat until the sugar dissolves, turning golden. Add the water, increase the heat and bring to the boil. Cook until the syrup is a deep amber colour – this should take around 10 minutes.

3 Remove from the heat and add the orange juice. Gradually add the cream whilst stirring and then whisk.

4 Place back on to a low heat. Whisk in the butter, honey, orange zest, and seeds from the vanilla pod. Stir in the Mexican Sweet Chilli Mixed Nuts.

5 Pour the filling into the pastry crust and bake until tart filling is bubbling – this should take around 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a rack. Serve with crème fraiche, along with a dusting of cocoa powder and orange zest.
