- To make the shortcake, preheat the oven to 180C. Combine the flour, sugar and salt in a bowl. Dice the butter and rub in until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs, then pour in the cream, mixing gently until just combined.
- Lightly flour a work surface then roll out the dough and cut into 12 x 10 cm circles with a cookie cutter. Let rest for 10 minutes before baking for 15 minutes or until golden.
- Pour the water into a saucepan, over a gentle heat add the sugar, orange oil or zest, vanilla and bring to a simmer. Add the rhubarb and let cook for 5 minutes.
- Assemble the dessert on individual plates. Dust each shortcake with icing sugar. Layer shortcake, yoghurt, shortcake, rhubarb and shortcake to finish.
