Total time: 15 minutes | Serves 2
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 6 tablespoons sugar, more or less as desired
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons Marsala wine

Step 1In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar until combined and frothy. Whisk in the white wine and the Marsala.

Step 2Set the bowl over a large pot of simmering water, making sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water. Continue to whisk until the mixture increases in volume and thickens to a thick, foamy cream, easily coating the back of a spoon. The final consistency should be similar to that of a very thick hollandaise.

Step 3Remove from heat and serve immediately. This makes a generous cup of zabaglione.

Note: For a more traditional zabaglione, increase the Marsala wine and decrease the white wine, keeping the total amount of wine at one-half cup.
