Whipped Cream Zabaglione

Recipe by  

"This zabaglione is different because it incorporates cream. I have viewed other recipes and this varies a lot. Serve chilled with fresh fruit of your choice. To make sure zabaglione is the right consistency run the whisk through and see that it falls in a steady stream standing on itself as it lands in the bowl."

  1. Fill a large saucepan with several inches of water, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat until the water maintains a strong simmer. Place the egg yolks, Marsala wine, and sugar into a metal mixing bowl. Place the bowl over the simmering water. Beat constantly with a wire whisk until the zabaglione turns pale yellow and thickens to the consistency of softly whipped cream. Scrape the zabaglione into a clean mixing bowl, and set over ice, stirring occasionally until cold. Once cold, fold in the whipped cream.

Outstanding!!And, can be prepared ahead of time. I made this five hours in advance and refrigerated it till I was ready to serve it. The whipped cream added extra body. I served it with fresh strawberries and blue berries in a wine glass. Everyone loved it. It serves 4 to 5 healthy portions.

The wine flavor didn't come through strongly enough for us. Would like to try using more, but don't want to throw off the texture/consistency, which really was just perfect. Will try to find similar recipes to see whether different proportions (just slightly) might work. If not, might seek out a better (possibly slightly stronger?) marsala wine. Really beautiful consistency though...

If you are looking for something that tastes like the berries and zabione at the Olive Garden- this is it. I followed the recipe exactly and had to stop myself from just eating it all with a giant spoon. I served it over a scoop of blackberry sorbet and fresh berries. Soooo good.

A trip back into my childhood! Perfectly proportioned ingredients, and easy to follow instructions. Thank you.

Love.this.recipe - traditional Italian zabaglione is served warm but I have never liked the warm version - this version is delicious and very easy - I think the yolk/sugar/marsala mixture thickened in about 5 min using a hand whisk - I'll be more inclined to make this for company now as it takes so little time.

I loved this dessert! The recipe is quite simple and easy, the perfect make-ahead dessert for something that is at once indulgent and light enough to enjoy even in summer. When using Marsala, go with a white, which will be more visually appealing.

wow. this is a-maze-ing! i had a recipe for this and it had soooooo many more ingrediants ... this was only 4 and it turned out sooooo great!! i presented mine in a red wine glass .... piped some of the cream into the bottom (didn't want it to look sloppy) then put in some strawberries and black berries ... spooned some more cream on top of the berries and added red raspberries for color and two cuts of starfruit for presentation purposes. all i can say is that everyone wanted the recipe and couldnt believe how easy it was to make something THAT delicious!
