These orange crumble bars are just the perfect mix of textures. With a fresh zesty flavour, they have a slightly gooey orange curd, and a crunchy crumble top. They’d go perfect with your afternoon cuppa or as a treat in the kids’ lunchboxes, or keep them refrigerated if you’ve got guests popping round or party food to prepare – they’d make a nice change from your usual tea dunking biscuits.


For the base and crumble:
  • 160g plain flour
  • 80g granulated sugar
  • 100g softened butter

For the filling:

  • 110g granulated sugar
  • 1tbsp plain flour
  • ½tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • Juice of ½ orange

These bars are great served chilled straight from the fridge.


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/Fan 160°C/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Grease a 20cm square tin.
  3. First make the base by placing all the ingredients in a bowl and mixing with an electric mixer until it becomes the consistency of thick crumbs.
  4. Take one half of the mixture and press it into the base of the tin. Put the rest to one side.
  5. Next make the filling by putting all the ingredients into a clean bowl and beating until fully incorporated.
  6. Pour the filling over the base and sprinkle over the remaining crumble.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is slightly spongy to the touch.
  8. Remove from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature before cutting into square.
