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:
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!
