This light, bittersweet trifle makes an original change of the traditional cheesecake


1kg of rhubarb


100g of caster sugar


600ml of double cream


30-40g of icing sugar


250g of caramelised biscuits (the speculos biscuits, are the biscuits you get in coffee shops to accompany your coffee or tea)


  • Wash and cut your rhubarb
  • Put it a large pan together with the sugar
  • Cook for 30 minutes in a medium heat stirring regularly to obtain a compote
  • Beat your double cream as a Chantilly, making sure it doesn’t become too thick, like butter; it needs to stay light and airy
  • Add the icing sugar and mix gently
  • Crush the biscuits either with a rolling pin or in a food processor
  • To assemble your trifle, add and alternate in a large serving bowl, the crushed biscuits, the Chantilly cream, the rhubarb compote
  • Eat cold or at room temperature
