Orange tian

I had no idea how this dessert was supposed to be as I hadn’t had it before. The result was surprising!

I loved every part of it:

  • the deliciously familiar taste of the pate sable
  • the sweet orange marmalade
  • the sour caramel
  • and the perfect whipped cream.

The combination of them was perfect, sweet and sour, so fresh. It’s definitely something I’ll do again.

You can find the recipe at the daring cooks recipe archive.

The 2010 March Daring Baker’s challenge was hosted by Jennifer of Chocolate Shavings. She chose Orange Tian as the challenge for this month, a dessert based on a recipe from Alain Ducasse’s Cooking School in Paris.



  1. Nicely done!
