Can’t believe it’s been 5 months since the release of my book, Bake With Shivesh. The response to the book has been incredible and I can’t thank you enough for supporting me. BIG hug and lots of love to each one of you who picked a copy of the book. For those who don’t have a copy yet, I thought I’ll share one of my favorite recipes from the book- eggless and gluten free orange tarts!
Also, I hope you have already subscribed to my new YouTube channel! I share a new video there every Friday. So if you prefer watching recipes, you know where to head.
Shell of eggless and gluten free orange tarts:
I make the shell of these orange tarts with oats and quinoa. I use black quinoa but you can use white quinoa also. I also use maple syrup to sweeten the tart shell instead of using refined sugar entirely. So here you go, you have a refined flour free tart shell recipe, that is packed with the goodness of oats and quinoa. Oh, quinoa reminds me, have you tried my gluten free quinoa brownies yet? SO good! I simply process all the ingredients in a food processor. Super simple, guilt free and very delicious.
Filling of eggless and gluten free orange tarts:
This is the first time I made eggless orange curd and I was blown away by it’s consistency and taste. It was perfectly thick and very flavorful. The fresh flavor comes from orange zest and orange juice. To thicken the filling, I use custard powder and corn flour. All the ingredients needed to make the filling of these eggless and gluten free orange tarts are basic and easily available.
If you end up making these tarts at home, don’t forget to share a picture with me on my Instagram using #BakeWithShivesh

The recipe looks gorg! Is there any way I could bake this in a microwave please?
I am trying this recipe tomorrow!
Thank you sooo much. I recommend baking these in the oven. Haven’t tried baking them in the microwave 🙁

Hey! What brand custard powder do you use? Some powders come ready vanilla flavoured. TIA x
Hey I made this orange curd. I was careful while putting in the cornflour and custard powder however it formed lumps as soon as I mixed it. I did mix it vigorously as mentioned in the recipe but my curd turned out a bit lumpy.
Is there any other way I could have avoided it?

You could always use a hand blender to mix it…it helps in dissolving any lumps that gets formed…
