Another wonderful recipe from my Aunt Peggy's The American Woman's Cook Book. There are several recipes already posted for Zabaglione but none like this one. Enjoy! *servings based on using as sauce.


  1. Beat egg yolks with honey until thick and lemon colored in the top of a double boiler. Add wine gradually. While it heats, continue to use a rotary beater. Serve as drink or dessert sauce with a dash of cinnamon.

This is perfect!!! It has a wonderful, thick, creamy consistency and the hint of cinnamon and honey sends it over the moon!! I used a prosecco wine and it had just the right amount of sweetness for me with the honey. This is a great sauce to use leftover egg yolks on and it tastes great with ladyfingers or fruit!! Thanks CindiJ!!
