Method

  1. Step 1

    Use a mandolin or vegetable peeler to cut the rhubarb lengthways into 2mm-thick ribbons.
  2. Step 2

    Place the sugar, orange juice, vanilla and ½ cup (125ml) water in a medium saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 2 mins or until the sugar dissolves. Add rhubarb and cook for 2-3 mins or until rhubarb is tender. Use a slotted spoon to transfer the rhubarb to a bowl.
  3. Step 3

    Increase heat to high. Bring the syrup in the pan to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 mins or until the syrup reduces by half.
  4. Step 4

    Meanwhile, heat a chargrill over high heat. Trim the 2 short ends of the cake and discard. Cut the remaining cake evenly into 6 slices. Cook the cake for 2 mins each side or until golden brown and lightly charred.
  5. Step 5

    Carefully divide the cake among serving plates. Spoon the cream over the cake on the plates and top with rhubarb. Drizzle with the syrup and sprinkle with the pistachio.
