French Sabayon or Italian Zabaglione Recipe; It's the Same Dessert!

Whether you call this dessert zabaglione like the Italians, or sabayon like the French, it is the same classic dessert made with egg yolks and sweet wine like a Marsala for the Italian version. It only takes about 15 minutes to make and can be prettied up by serving in a glass with fresh berries.

French Sabayon
Italian Zabaglione
Prep time: 15 minutes
Makes 4 servings
2 packages (6 ounces each) raspberries
4 large egg yolks
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup dry Marsala wine

Divide berries between four 8-ounce dessert dishes or stemmed glasses.

Fill the bottom of a double boiler (or a saucepan with a metal bowl fitted snuggly on top) with 1-2 inches of water or just below bowl. Bring water to a simmer.

Beat egg yolks and sugar in top of double boiler or bowl with an electric mixer or wire whisk until fluffy and light in color, about 5 minutes. Maintain water at a low simmer while beating.

Add Marsala, 1 tablespoon at a time, continuously beating until mixture forms very soft peaks, about 8 minutes.
Pour zabaglione mixture over berries and serve immediately.
