French Food Friday...Sweet Wine Sabayon with Berries

recipe and photo from here 

Bonjour mes belles,

This week's recipe is a nice easy one and one that I use when I am running short of time......

Sweet Wine Sabayon with Berries

4 large eggs, at room temperature 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar 3/4 cup sweet wine, such as Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise, at room temperature 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest 2 cups mixed fresh berries Mint sprigs, for garnish

  1. Pour 2 inches of water into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Prepare an ice water bath in a medium bowl. Place 4 large wine glasses in the freezer to chill.
  2. Crack the egg yolks into a large stainless steel bowl. Add the sugar and whisk until pale and slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Add the wine and orange zest. Set the bowl over the boiling water and whisk constantly over moderately low heat until the sabayon is thick and has doubled in volume, about 8 minutes. Immediately set the bowl in the ice water bath and let cool, stirring occasionally, about 15 minutes.
  3. Spoon the cold sabayon into the chilled wineglasses and top with the mixed berries. Garnish the sabayon with the mint sprigs and serve.
