Zabaglione with Fresh Peaches and Raspberries

Serves 4
Zabaglione is the most ethereal light custard, which i like to serve as a sauce over fresh fruit. It must be made at the last minute though, so prepare your fruit, ingredients and equipment before dinner and whip the sauce up just before dessert.


  • 4 peaches
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 3 tablespoons Marsala wine
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 pint raspberries


1. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Prepare an ice-water bath. Place peaches in boiling water and cook 10 seconds. Drain, and immediately transfer peaches to ice-water bath. Remove peels using your fingers or a paring knife. Slice peaches in half and remove pit; set aside.
2. In a heatproof bowl set over (but not touching) simmering water, add egg yolks, Marsala, and sugar. Beat until mixture is creamy and thick, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat.
3. Divide peach halves evenly between 4 plates. Fill peach halves with berries and spoon over zabaglione. Serve immediately.
