Vanilla and Rhubarb Syllabub

Vanilla and Rhubarb syllabub is about the easiest pudding you can make, serve in a wine glass for stunning effect
Servings: 2
Prep Time10 mins
Total Time10 mins


For the Rhubarb

  • 500 g rhubarb
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla powder
  • 2 tbsp water

For the Syllabub

  • 150 ml double cream
  • 1 dsp icing sugar
  • 2 dsp rhubarb curd
  • 60 ml dry white wine or champagne


For the Rhubarb

  • Cut the rhubarb into 1cm pieces. Place all the ingredients in a saucepan, and place on a medium heat. Cook only until the rhubarb is just soft and still holds its shape – as it cools, it will continue to cook. For an added citrus edge add the juice of half a lemon.

For the Syllabub

  • Place the cream and icing sugar into a large bowl, and whip with an electric mixer until the cream holds a soft peak. Add the curd and wine and carry on whipping until the mixture has thickened, but is still floppy (if the syllabub thickens too much add some milk to thin it).
  • Add a spoon of poached rhubarb to two champagne flutes, layer some syllabub on top and top with some more rhubarb - the easiest way to do this neatly is to use a jam funnel.
  • Chill until ready to serve garnished with some crushed meringues.
