We were in the kitchen yesterday working on a traditional Italian dessert called Zabaglione (Sabayon or Zabaione). It is made with some basic ingredients and we are going to show you how to do it from scratch!
- 2 Egg Yolks
- 2 Tablespoons of Sugar
- 3 Tablespoons of Marsala or Moscato Wine
- 1/3 Cup of Heavy Cream
- Fresh strawberries and blueberries
Grab your double boiler and place on stovetop with a couple of cups of water in the bottom. Bring to a low boil. In the top bowl, place your egg yolks & sugar.
Now the fun begins, put the egg/sugar mixture on the double boiler base that has water at a low boil, and start mixing with your hand mixer. Whisk the mix until it becomes thick like pudding - this could take 15 minutes. Hint: Keep the boil low or you will end up with scrambled eggs-oops!!!
Once you reach the desired thickness, whisk in your 3 Tablespoons of wine. Remove from heat and place bowl on ice (we use a larger stainless steel bowl). Next, stir in the heavy cream to the mixture!
Pour this custard over fresh strawberries or blueberries and refrigerate!
Serve once chilled! Makes 4 custard size servings!
Hint: Make a double boiler with a regular pot and a stainless steel bowl that fits on top!
Taking it over the top: Serve in Champagne Flutes for special occassions!
