  • 1 lb oranges
  • 1/2 cup (scant) granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar for the orange puree
  • 1 cup mascarpone
  • 1 cup cream cheese
  • 1 3/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3.5 oz ladyfingers


Prepare the oranges:

  • Prepare oranges: 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.
  • Orange juice: 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.
  • Blend: 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.


  • Make the syrup: Pour the 10 tablespoons of collected orange juice into a small pan. Add 1 tablespoon sugar and the lemon juice and bring to a boil, often stirring to dissolve the sugar. When it starts to boil, immediately remove it from the heat and let it cool. You should have a thin syrup.


  • Mix the mascarpone, cream cheese, yogurt, and 60 g/ 1/3 cup sugar. Whisk the heavy cream until stiff and fold carefully into the mascarpone mixture.


  • Spread about half of the mascarpone-yogurt mixture in a casserole dish (about 30 x 20 cm/ 12 x 7 inches).
  • 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. Pour the remaining syrup into the bowl containing the pureed oranges.
  • Arrange the orange segments on top of the ladyfingers and cover everything with the rest of the mascarpone mixture.
  • Refrigerate: Cover the dish with plastic foil and refrigerate overnight.
  • Top: Just before serving, spread the pureed oranges on top of the tiramisu.
