- 6 egg yolks shopping list
- 1/3 cup sugar shopping list
- 3/4 cup marsala wine shopping list
- 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel shopping list
- ground cinnamon or freshly grated nutmeg shopping list
- vanilla extract shopping list
- 1-1/2 cups heavy cream, whipped shopping list
- strawberries, raspberries, lady fingers or biscotti shopping list
How to make it
- Place egg yolks, and sugar in a large, round-bottomed stainless steel bowl.
- Add grated lemon peel and a pinch of cinnamon and a drop of vanilla extract to the yolk mixture.
- Pour in the Marsala wine.
- You can use sweet Vermouth as a substitute for the Marsala.
- Half-fill a pot with water, bring the water to a simmer and reduce the heat to low.
- Set the pan or bowl containing the custard mixture over the water. The bottom of the bowl should not touch the water.
- Whisk the custard mixture, making sure that the water does not boil. This ensures that a gentle, even heat thickens the mixture without curdling it. Whisking traps air in the yolks for a light, fluffy mixture.
- Continue whisking for about 10 minutes, until the mixture triples in volume, froths up and becomes pale.
- When it reaches the desired consistency, take the container of custard out of the pot.
- Slightly thickened, the custard can be used as a sauce.
- Longer cooking will thicken the custard further, giving it the texture of mousse.
- Continue whisking for a minute or two to prevent the custard from sticking to its container.
- Serve the custard while still warm, or, if you want to serve it cool, set it aside for about 15 minutes.
- Whisk heavy cream until it forms soft peaks.
- Add the whipped cream to the cooled custard and use a whisk to gently fold them together.
- Reserve some of the whipped cream to serve on top.
- Ladle the zabaglione into individual dishes.
- Serve with whipped cream, berries, and/or cookies such as biscotti.
- Serves 6
