Rhubarb and Ginger Deliciousnesses

Rhubarb and Ginger Deliciousnesses are a fabulously light way to welcome the Spring sunshine and impress your and your family’s tastebuds. Beautiful pink seasonal rhubarb, a hint of orange and my all time favourite indulgence – mascarpone. These individual rhubarb desserts can be assembled ahead of time and kept in the fridge until ready to serve.

Rhubarb and Ginger Deliciousnesses

Recipe by GraceCourse: Recipes, Sweet TreatsDifficulty: Easy



All these flavours and textures work together brilliantly…


  • 6 stalks rhubarb, chopped into 1″ pieces

  • Tbsp caster sugar

  • 250g mascarpone (low fat version if you prefer)

  • 2 tbsp icing sugar

  • 1 tbsp Stones Ginger Wine (marsala or sherry will do just as well)

  • Finely grated zest of 1 orange

  • 100ml double cream, whipped

  • 12 sponge fingers

  • Almond slivers, toasted


  • Cook the rhubarb with 1 tbsp caster sugar and 3 tbsp water in a lidded saucepan over a low heat, until very soft (I find this only takes 5 mins)… leave to cool.
  • Mix the mascarpone, icing sugar, alcohol and orange zest until smooth. Fold through the whipped cream.
  • Break up the sponge fingers and put some in the base of each serving glass. Then layer the rhubarb and mascarpone on top. Finally, add a generous sprinkle of golden toasted almond slivers.

Delicious!!! A great addition to the quick pud list. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I dipped the sponge fingers in a mixture of rhubarb juice, ginger cordial and Kings Ginger Liqueur to make them a bit soft, and used crushed ginger nuts cos I didn’t have any almonds but did have half a pack or rather soft biscuits, which crisped up in the oven in a minute or two. I’ve put a photo on Twitter x

It’s sounds so good. Could anyone from the US help me translate into American products? Specifically , Caster sugar. I do know the rest.
Thanks so much
