  • Easy

Zabaglione is a foamy Italian dessert made from whisked egg yolks, cream, sugar and dry Marsala. Here it is frozen and turned into a delicious ice cream. Serve with a sprinkling of cinnamon, nuts or fresh berries in beautiful coupe glasses or cups.



  • eggs 4 yolks
  • golden caster sugar 125g
  • dry Marsala 150ml
  • whipping cream 142ml pot


  • Step 1

    Put the egg yolks into a large bowl that will fit over a saucepan. Add the sugar and whisk until the mixture is pale and thick and leaves a trail when the beaters are lifted.

  • Step 2

    Whisk in the marsala, then put the bowl over (not in) a pan of simmering water and continue whisking until the mixture has at least doubled in volume.

  • Step 3

    Remove from the heat, stand the bowl in cold water and whisk until cool. Whip the cream until it just holds its shape. Add to the cold zabaglione and whisk together.

  • Step 4

    Pour into a container and freeze for about 1½-2 hours or until firm. Serve in small glasses or bowls.
