- Meanwhile, beat the eggs and mix with orange juice and two tablespoons of sugar previously separate. Blend everything very well trying to obtain a homogeneous mixture.
- When the mixture is ready pour it into the mold and cover with some aluminum foil to keep water as it cooks.
- To cook the mold is inserted inside another larger bowl with water, put in the oven preheated to 170 degrees for about 50 minutes.
