Orange Stuffed Sweet Potato Tart

Updated: Jan 25, 2023

I remember my sister-in-law telling me about this dessert her mother use to fix when she grew up. It sounds so good I decided to try it out. I added my own twist to the dish with orange zest, and orange juice. This dessert can be topped with vanilla ice cream, marshmallows, or whip cream.

This would be consider a sweet little potato pie hidden inside of a orange. It is such a special treat. The orange zest and juice added to the batter enhances the warm cinnamon spices.

My sister-n-law shared that her mom would add Rum to her batter when she made these orange tart. I think that is a good option or Orange liqueur triple sec would add a nice flavor

Storing Tip

The orange tarts can be store in the fridge in an airtight container for 4-5 days. I would not try to reheat them or freeze. It can be served at room temperature or cold.

Ingredients Orange Stuffed Sweet Potato Tart

  • Oranges- are the base of this dish. Navel oranges are the best.

  • Sweet Potatoes- I use two large sweet potatoes for this recipe. If you want more tarts simply double the ingredients

  • Butter- Softened butter will mix and blend easily with the sugar when combining your base

  • Sugar- for this delicious tart a blend of brown and white granulated sugar. The brown sugar gives it a molasses flavor

  • Eggs- When you use room temperature eggs, they easily mix with the softened butter and create a smooth, uniformly textured batter.

  • Orange zest & juice- FLAVOR! is all I can say. It brings a citrusy, tangy flavor to the dish

  • Heavy cream & half & half milk-I like using the two combinations of milk. Heavy cream is an excellent thickener and the half & half creates a smoother, creamier result

  • Cinnamon- is a warm and sweet spice that can give a hint of festivity in our hearts at any time of the year.

  • Vanilla extract- enhances all the other flavors in this recipe.

Let's Cook!

  • Preheat the oven to 350° F Boil the sweet potatoes until tender, about 45 minutes. Allow the potatoes to cool. Peel and mash in a bowl adding your butter, brown, and white sugar orange zest, and orange juice.

  • In a separate bowl, Whisk the eggs, cinnamon, and vanilla. Pour the wet mixture into the sweet potatoes. You can use an electric mixer if you prefer.

Oranges- Cut off the top of the oranges and remove the center orange meat. Pour the sweet potato mixture into each orange and bake until firm. (About 30-45 minutes) Allow to cool and top with vanilla ice cream, marshmallows toasted, or whip cream.

Bon Appetit, Enjoy!
