Melt In Your Mouth Orange Squares

41 comments


This is my first time making Orange Squares with a recipe adapted from Recipe.com. These melt-in-the-mouth squares were full of orange flavour and just wonderful, more so when taken warm. They were indeed delicious as the orange custard have been infused into the crust below which was a perfect combination of flavours.  Store the leftover orange squares in the refrigerator for 2 days if you still have some leftovers. Chilled leftovers will not be able to give you the melt-in-the-mouth effect but they were still moist with the orange custard. Definitely a nice treat for anyone as an afternoon tea.



Melt In Your Mouth Orange Squares


    Ingredients: adapted from Recipe.com with adjustments
      Crust Pastry
      110g Plain flour
      20g Almond meal
      15g Icing sugar
      zest from one orange
      115g Butter, softened



      Orange custard
      100g Sugar
      2 Large eggs (70g each)
      1/4 cup Fresh orange juice
      zest from one orange
      40g Plain flour
      1/4 tsp Baking powder




      Method:
  • Preheat oven to 180C.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour, ground almonds, icing sugar and orange zest. Using a pastry blender (I used food processor), cut in butter until mixture is formed to a soft dough. Press evenly into the bottom of a 8 inch x 2 square (lined) baking pan. 
  • Bake for 20 minutes, or until light browned.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, eggs, orange juice and zest. Combine plain flour and baking powder, add to sugar mixture, whisking to combine. Pour over crust. 
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until just set. Sprinkle with confectioners sugar and decorate with a piece of mandarin orange on top.

  7. Ann, sorry I have a question..........when you say zest from 1 orange do you mean use the zest of 1 whole orange or do you mean some zest from 1 orange? Sorry if it sounds stupid. Forgive me. Thanks!

    1. Ai Li, Yes, I always used zest of whole orange or lemon. Also good to add the mandarin orange on top, taste better.

    2. Hi Ann, thanks for your prompt reply.....does it affect if it is a BIG orange which means a lot more zest?

    3. No problem. I bought the sunkist oranges in bag at Fairprice. Is very sweet and juicy but the oranges are medium size.

  27. Zest of whole orange, means the skin plus the meat of the orange too?

    1. Hi, zest of whole orange is the grated skin from the orange. No orange meat in this recipe only juice.
