Zabaglione, also known as zabaione or sabayon, is a classic Italian dessert made with egg yolks, sugar, and sweet wine. Here’s a simple recipe for making zabaglione at home:
- 4 egg yolks
- 1/3 cup of sugar
- 1/2 cup of sweet Marsala wine
- Fresh berries or other fruit, for serving
- Fill a saucepan with about an inch of water and bring it to a simmer over medium heat.
- In a large heatproof bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until well combined.
- Add the Marsala wine to the egg yolk mixture and whisk to combine.
- Place the bowl over the saucepan of simmering water, making sure the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water.
- Whisk the mixture constantly for about 5-8 minutes, or until it thickens and forms soft peaks.
- Remove the bowl from the heat and continue whisking for another minute or two to cool it down slightly.
- Divide the zabaglione among serving dishes, and serve immediately with fresh berries or other fruit.
Optional: You can also add a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg to the zabaglione for added flavor.
