The Sweetest Rhubarb Temptation

Rhubarb dessert mood

To be honest I have never done something with rhubarb before. Actually I had to find out whether or not to peel the rhubarb. There seems to be no real consensus regarding this. I didn’t peel it and I think it was the right choice. So far I guess I only had rhubarb cake or rhubarb with vanilla pudding or vanilla sauce – also yummy but I wanted to make a sweet sweet dessert.

Yesterday was a public holiday, so the perfect occasion for making a sweet little treat for the loved one.

It smells so nice when the sugar and honey in the pan caramelize. The pulp of one whole vanilla bean might sound a little too much for two desserts but it tastes superb! I kind of freestyled this dessert, combining rhubarb with everything all creamy and sweet.

At first I wanted to take shortbread biscuits for the base but then it came into my mind that the Italian biscotti we have would pimp the desert even more. I should bring more of this good stuff from Italy in the summer! It definitely does not only go well with coffee.

What you need for two desserts:

  • Rhubarb – 4 stems
  • 250g plain yoghurt
  • 100g whipped cream
  • 100g biscotti
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • Sugar
  • Dark honey
  • Some apple juice
  • Steps:

  • Cut the rhubarb into small pieces and put it in a pan, covered with sugar, honey, vanilla pulp and a little bit of apple juice
  • Mix everything and let it simmer on low heat until the rhubarb becomes pulpy and has absorbed all the flavours
  • Whip the cream and blend with yoghurt, some sugar and honey
  • Crush the biscotti into big crumbles
  • Layer the desert in a glas – first the crushed biscotti, then the cream and then the rhubarb on top
  • Enjoy!
  • You might want to serve the dessert differently. I only had a red-wine glas at hand. And oh yes, it must have around 1000 kcals!

      Hi Claudia,

      Looks delicious. I love rhubarb and have aswell some recipes on my website. About peel or not peel. I have heard that there are some oxalate toxics mostly in leaves but aswell around the stalk. So I am usually peeling it. But it is very little amount so no worries :) .
