I am not a coffee drinker and I’ll probably never become one. Therefore, I’ve never been in on the tiramisu and that has always bothered me a little.. it’s probably the name, it sounds so seductive. At one time I heard about a rhubarb tiramisu and that was my way into the tiramisu world! Then I forgot about it, but when I saw my rhubarbs shoot again, it came back to me.

You will surely be able to exchange orange and rhubarb with e.g. elderflower cordial, strawberry, Baileys, raspberry, blackcurrant … The sky is the limit

The pictures here aren’t the best as they were taken with my cellphone. I had forgotten that the camera had run out of battery. Better pictures are coming when I make it the next time – and I definitely will do that soon because it tastes so good!

Serves 4-6


  • 400 g rhubarbs
  • 100 ml sugar
  • 12 ladyfingers (approx.)
  • 100 ml freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 50 g sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 250 g mascarpone
  • 3 egg whites
  • Planed or grated dark chocolate
  • Orange zest (organic)


Preheat the oven to 200C. Clean the rhubarbs and cut them into approx. 1 cm pieces. Place them in an ovenproof dish and sprinkle the sugar over them. Bake them for about 20 minutes. Take them out of the oven and let them cool off.

Place the 12 ladyfingers in a dish and pour the orange juice on top.

Scrape the vanilla seeds out of the pod and mix them with a little bit of the sugar to separate the seeds. Mix egg yolks, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until it turns white and light. Add the mascarpone and beat it until there aren’t any more lumps. But not too long as the mascarpone mustn’t become too liquidised. In a separate bowl, you whip the egg whites stiff and fold them into the mascarpone custard.

On top of the ladyfingers, you place the rhubarbs (you might want to save a little for decoration) and juice. Apply the custard on top. Place the tiramisu in the fridge for 1 hour (or longer) so the cakes can soak up the juices.

Before serving, decorate with baked rhubarb pieces, planed or grated chocolate and orange zest.
