    1. Preheat oven to 160 C / Gas 3.
    2. Stir sugar and water together in a heavy-bottomed saucepan until sugar has dissolved; bring to the boil, without stirring, until dark brown in colour. Immediately pour the caramel into a baking dish, swirling it around to coat the bottom. Set dish aside to allow the caramel to set.
    3. Place milk, orange zest and vanilla pod in a saucepan; heat over low heat until just below simmering point.
    4. Whisk eggs, egg yolks and sugar together in a bowl; remove vanilla pod and pour hot milk onto egg mixture, stirring continuously. Add liqueur, then pour mixture through a sieve on top of the hardened caramel.
    5. Place dish in a roasting tin; fill the tin half-way with boiling water and bake in preheated oven for about 40 minutes, or until just set.
    6. Chill the dessert in the fridge for at least for 2 hours; run a palette knife around the edges of the dish and turn out onto a serving platter.
    7. Arrange the fresh orange segments around the creme caramel and serve.
