Orange Tiramisu

 

Sunshine on a plate! My number one recipe in this Orange Series, one of my favorite dessert recipes ever.

I do like a classic tiramisu as well, but this version of it is so much better. Forget the heaviness and the sometimes overpowering sweetness of the Italian classic and enjoy this light, fresh and flavorful orange tiramisu. Ladyfingers bedded in a creamy mixture of mascarpone, yogurt and cream, orange slices in between the layers and a finish of pureed oranges on top. I am telling you: this is dessert heaven!

I made this several times years and years ago and then kind of forgot it. I mean, it was never really forgotten, but so many other dessert recipes wanted to be tried as well. When deciding to make this orange series, I immediately decided that this tiramisu will be one of the recipes featured. I’ve made it several times since, my husband and kids love it so much, I am bound to keep making it.

Ingredients
  • 500 g/ 1.1 lbs oranges
  • 80 g sugar/ 2.8 oz/ ⅓ cup + 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar for the orange puree
  • 250 g/ 8.8 oz mascarpone
  • 200 g/ 7 oz cream cheese
  • 350 g/ 12.3 oz yogurt
  • 60 g/ 2.1 oz/ ⅓ cup sugar
  • 200 g/ 7 oz heavy cream
  • 100 g/ 3.5 oz ladyfingers
Instructions
  1. Top and tail the oranges and peel them with a knife, removing all the white pith. Using a sharp knife cut in between the orange segments to separate them from the orange skins. Do this over a bowl and make sure to collect all the running juices. When finished press again all the skin rests to collect as much juice as possible. You will need about 150 ml/ 10 tablespoons in the end.
  2. Weigh about 200 g/ 7 oz of the orange segments and puree them, adding 1 tablespoon of sugar. Place in the fridge, covered, until ready to serve.
  3. To make the syrup place the 10 tablespoons collected orange juice in a small pan. Add the sugar and the lemon juice and bring to a boil, stirring often. When it starts to boil, immediately remove from the heat and let cool. You should have a thin syrup.
  4. Mix the mascarpone, cream cheese, yogurt and the rest of the sugar together. Whisk the heavy cream until stiff and fold carefully into the mascarpone mixture.
  5. Spread about half of the mascarpone-yogurt mixture in a nice casserole dish (about 30 x 20 cm/ 12 x 7 inch). Arrange the ladyfingers on top and carefully pour some of the syrup on them (using a tablespoon) until they are soaked. You might not need to add all the syrup. Give the remaining syrup to the bowl containing the pureed oranges.
  6. Arrange the rest of the orange segments on top of the ladyfingers and cover everything with the rest of the mascarpone mixture. Cover the dish with plastic foil and refrigerate for several hours or better overnight.
  7. Just before serving spread the pureed oranges on top of the tiramisu. Enjoy!

Omg Adina this dish is too pretty. My mouth was watering just at the title let alone your vibrant pictures! If there wasn’t an ocean separating us I would be at your house for dessert every day. Pinning this guy for Mother’s Day, Easter or both 🙂

The traditional tiramisu is perfect just the way it is, but I’m also loving this citrusy, lighter, and less sweet option. It looks luscious!

This really does look like sunshine on a plate! What a fun and cheery variation on tiramisu, not to mention perfect for people who aren’t really big on coffee flavor (I’ve got a few of those in my family).

This version is really more suitable for kids, my two don’t dig the coffee taste either. Not yet. 🙂

i love coffee, but i’m not crazy about coffee-flavored desserts! i’ve always enjoyed the texture of tiramisu, though, and this is a great way to get that, but without the bitterness of coffee spoiling everything! bravo!
