Place the bowl on a saucepan with hot water on low heat. Keep whisking the egg cream for 3-4 minutes.

Heat the Egg Cream


Add Marsala

Add slowly the Marsala wine. Mix everything together, keeping whisking until it reaches a puffy full-bodied consistency. 

It will take about 10 minutes in total.


Zabaglione is ready when, raising the whisk, you drop a fairly solid trail, as a ribbon, on the surface of the mixture. The cream must not cook or boil, but just be warm.


How to serve

You can serve your Zabaglione immediately, hot and creamy. Pour it into small glass bowls and enjoy it with Savoiardi or other cookies.


Place the bowl with the Zabaglione on top of a bowl with ice cubes. Mix gently for a couple of minutes.
