ORANGE MASCARPONE DESSERT

Sunshine on a plate! This tiramisu with oranges and mascarpone is one of the best desserts I have ever made.

Tiramisu is my favorite dessert, the only dessert (except ice cream) I have ever ordered in a restaurant (repeatedly), the only dessert I make on a regular basis, at least once every 3 or 4 months, and that’s a lot!

And, of course, there are all the versions of a tiramisu I make often as well. This orange tiramisu, which is perfect in winter, the strawberry tiramisu in spring or the apple tiramisu in autumn. No summer tiramisu, I see… I have to find one for the summer as well…

Or I will just make this wonderful tiramisu cake again… I can’t get enough of it lately…

Why you will love the orange tiramisu?

Unlike the Italian classic, this citrus fruit version of tiramisu is light, fresh and very flavorful.

Again, not that I have anything against the classic, as mentioned above a typical tiramisu is my favorite dessert in the world! But I like the change and this lively tiramisu is worth it anytime.

The mascarpone orange dessert is incredibly creamy, just like a tiramisu should be.

You will also love those soaked and super sweet ladyfingers bedded in the mascarpone, yogurt and cream mixture and, most of all, you will love those sweet and tangy orange slices and the orange sauce on top of the dessert.

INGREDIENTS FOR ORANGE TIRAMISU

Oranges:

  • Juicy and preferably larger oranges.
  • You will need to remove the white pit and you will be able to do that just a little bit quicker if the oranges are larger.

Dairy:

  • Mascarpone is the classic ingredient used for tiramisu.
  • For an Italian tiramisu, you will need mascarpone and mascarpone only. And eggs.
  • For this type of tiramisu of fruity tiramisu, you will also need some cream cheese, yogurt, and heavy cream.
  • And you will not need any raw eggs, which I know many people will be happy to hear about.
  • Mascarpone is the dairy product containing the most fat. By replacing some of it with other milk products, you will be able to reduce the calories in this dessert.
  • But don’t think that that will make the orange tiramisu a healthy dessert, you might reduce the calorie number, but the dessert is still a calorie bomb.

Ladyfingers:

  • For an absolutely perfect tiramisu, you could make your own ladyfingers, it is not particularly difficult.
  • However, I rarely bother with that, I find bought ladyfingers delicious and very convenient.

HOW TO MAKE ORANGE TIRAMISU?

The orange tiramisu has to be made well in advance, as it will need time to rest and set in the fridge.

I always make it the day before I want to serve it and keep it in the fridge until the next day.

Separate the orange segments:

  • This is the only part of the recipe that will take some time and dedication.
  • Top and tail the oranges and peel them with a knife, removing all the white pith.
  • Using a small, 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 all the skin rests to collect as much juice as possible. You will need about 150 ml/ 10 tablespoons to make the orange syrup.
  • Weigh and puree about 200 g/7 oz of the orange segments, you will need them for the upper layer of the tiramisu.
  • Keep the remaining whole orange segments for layering the tiramisu.
  • orange peeling Orange Tiramisu

Syrup for soaking the ladyfingers:

  • 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 to dissolve the sugar.
  • Immediately, remove from the heat, the syrup should be thin and not thicken.

Dairy:

  • Mix the mascarpone, yogurt, and sugar. Beat the heavy/double cream until stiff and fold it into the mixture.

Layer the orange tiramisu:

  • You will need a casserole dish of about 30 x 20 cm/ 12 x 7 inches, a little more or less is fine.
  • Spread about half of the mascarpone-yogurt mixture into the dish.
  • Arrange the ladyfingers on top.
  • Pour some of the syrup on them (using a tablespoon) until they are slightly soaked. You might not need to add all the syrup.
  • Reserve the remaining syrup for making the top orange layer.
  • Arrange the leftover orange segments (those you haven’t pureed) 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.
  • Only top with the orange sauce just before serving.

Orange topping:

  • Mix the pureed orange segments with the leftover orange syrup.

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!
