Sabayon Sauce with Fresh Berries Recipe

Sabayon (French Sweet Sauce) with Fresh Berries

Sabayon is the French term for Zabaglione, which is a delicious sweet sauce that is fantastic poured over fresh fruit.


  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup Moscato or other fruity white wine
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 4 cups fresh fruit recommended: mixture of strawberries, blackberries, blueberries or raspberries


  • In a large bowl, whisk together egg yolks, sugar, and wine. Place bowl over a pot of simmering water, making sure that the bowl isn't touching the water. Whisk your mixture continuously for about 4-5 minutes, until it expands and thickens. Remove bowl from heat, and keep whisking for about a minute. Set aside to cool. (Important: do not skip the step to let the mixture cool.)
  • Using an electric mixer, beat cream until soft peaks form. Fold whipped cream gently into cooled sabayon.
  • Divide your fruit evenly between four mini trifle bowls, then spoon sabayon over the fruit. Garnish with more fruit, and serve immediately.
