How to make Orange Bars Recipe



  • 113g butter, melted
  • 50g granulated sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 140g all-purpose flour


  • 100g sugar
  • 3 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1.5 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
  • 1/2 cup strained fresh orange juice
  • 2 to 3 tablespoon powdered sugar for dusting

How to make the recipe

  • Line an 8-inch square pan with foil on all 4 sides. Preheat oven to 180degC. Position a rack in the lower third of oven.
  • For crust: melt butter in medium saucepan. Remove from heat and stir in sugar, vanilla, and salt. Add the flour and mix just until incorporated. Press the dough evenly over the bottom of the pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the crust is well browned at the edges and lightly browned in centre.
  • For topping: while the crust is baking, stir together the sugar and flour in a medium bowl until well mixed. Whisk in the eggs. Stir in the orange zest and juice. When crust is ready, turn the oven down to 150degC and slide the rack out without
  • removing the pan. Pour filling over hot crust.
  • Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until the topping is puffed at the edges and no longer jiggles in the center. Set on a rack and cool completely in pan. When cooled, lift the foil liner and transfer to cutting board and cut into 16 bars. Sieve powdered sugar over bars just before serving.
