Place a piece of orange pie on a plate. Garnish with the pastry cream, the ice cream and a few pieces of raspberries.
For the orange pie
In a bowl, mix the sugar with the baking powder. Add the eggs, the vanilla extract and mix well. Add the yoghurt, the orange zest and continue stirring with a whisk until the mixture forms a creamy texture. Add the oil and whisk until incorporated.
Add the phyllo pieces and stir gently by hand to combine with the mixture. Place the mixture in a baking pan and bake in a preheated oven at 160 °C (320 F) for 60΄- 70΄. Check for doneness by inserting a small skewer to the center of the pie, it should come out clean. Remove from the oven and pierce the surface gently with a kitchen fork or knife. Pour in enough syrup to completely cover the surface of the pie. Once the syrup is absorbed after a few minutes pour in enough syrup to cover the surface of the pie once again. Repeat until all syrup is used. Let the pie cool down before serving. You may serve at the preferred temperature, we recommend slightly warm. You may store at room temperature or the fridge.
For the syrup
Place all the ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Set aside and keep hot until needed.
For the pastry cream with whipped cream
Put the milk with half the sugar and vanilla in a saucepan and slowly bring almost to a boil. Remove the pot from the heat, cover it with a clingfilm and let it rest for about 20 minutes. For maximum flavor store in the fridge overnight to let the aromas infuse.
Return to the heat and bring to a boil just before boiling. At the same time mix the eggs with the rest of the sugar and the corn starch. Pour ½ of the milk mixture slowly into the egg mixture while stirring constantly with a whisk avoid cooking the egg. Return to the pot and cook on low heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens and begins to bubble.
Remove from the heat and add the butter. Pass the cream through a sieve and place it in a pan to cool, covering its surface with film to avoid skin formation. When the cream cools completely mix in the whipped cream. Store in the fridge.
Tip: We can serve the orange pie either hot or cold.
Tip: We can combine the orange pie with ice cream of our choice or even with yogurt.
