Zabaione - Original Italian

GialloZafferano's picture
The zabaione is the most classic and simple custard in Italy: it's usually served in a cup and accompanied by dry biscuits, or it can be used to make other desserts.
Ingredients
  Wine 100 Milliliter
  Sugar 160 Gram
  Yolks 8 Medium
Directions

MAKING
1. Separate the egg whites from the yolks, whisk the egg yolk in a pan along with sugar until the mixture is fluffy and thick cream like consistency.
2. Now add the wine in a thin stream, place the pan into a slightly larger pan filled with boiling water, whisk the mixture for at least 10 minutes.
3. Our zabaione is ready to be tasted alone, or you can use it to make an excellent tiramisu.

SERVING
4. Serve with biscuits or as an accompaniment.

NOTE
The smaller pan must not touch the water and the water shouldn't be boiling.
