Cooking with Corazon: Episode XXIX

Raspberry Zabaglione

Today I decided to try my hand at a very simple but extremely popular Italian dessert called Zabaglione. Take a look:

This was a pretty easy but fun dessert to cook. If you can whisk stuff for a good 15 minutes you should be fine. Here are the ingredients:


6 large egg yolks
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1 package fresh raspberries


1.) With an electric mixer or wire whip, beat the egg yolks, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla in a stainless-steel bowl.

2.) In a separate pot, boil a small amount of water. Once water is boiling, reduce heat and allow water to simmer.

3.) Place the stainless-steel bowl over the pot of water. Ensure that the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water or the eggs may scramble.

3.) Continue to beat the mixture constantly (roughly 15-20 minutes) until the mixture thickens. The eggs will first become frothy but will eventually stiffen up. Once the mixture is to the consistency you desire (almost like a custard) remove from the water and heat.

4.) Spoon the contents into a serving dish and add desired raspberries (or whatever fruit you desire).

5.) Scarf.

Yep, it's that easy. A fun and delicious Italian dessert.

Buen Provecho!
