Ingredients

  • 400g blackberries

    Blackberry

    blak-bear-ee

    A purply black-coloured berry comprising many individual seed-containing fruits surrounding a…

  • 140g golden caster sugar
  • 6 egg yolk
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 3 tbsp marsala or sweet wine

Method

  1. In a bowl, lightly crush the berries with 25g of the sugar. Add a spoonful to the bottom of 6 small glasses, then set the rest of the berry mixture aside.

  2. Bring some water to a gentle simmer in a medium-size saucepan and tip the egg yolks into a large heatproof bowl. Halve and scrape the seeds from the vanilla pod into the egg yolks and add the remaining sugar. Using an electric whisk, beat until light and airy. Splash in the Marsala, place the bowl over the pan of simmering water, then whisk your heart out for 10-12 mins until the egg yolks are thick and foamy and the whisk leaves a defined trail. Drain off some of the juice, then ripple the remaining berries through the mousse and spoon into the glasses.

Quick to prepare and very scrummy for impromptu Italian night!! Blackberrys too expensive so used strawberry's instead!

I made this for a relaxed dinner with friends. I didn't bother getting Marsala and used a splash of port instead which worked really well. It was very well received. Blackberries were perfect. We talked about using Frangelico and raspberries if making again.

This was a different zabaglione to any I've ever tasted - very thick, more like a custard than the foamy deliciousness I was expecting. It was good, but not zabaglione... I think some liquid is missing from the recipe?

Really want to make this on Friday but don't have time to do it fresh, can it be made ahead and chilled?

Can you make any or all of this in advance?

This was heavenly - we all loved it! Great to make if you've been making meringues and have lots of yolks leftover.
