Test Kitchen Tip

When cooking the yolk mixture over barely simmering water, check the temperature with a thermometer. Once it reaches 145°, cook it for 3 minutes more.


Beat egg yolks and sugar in a metal bowl with a mixer on medium speed until mixture is thick, lemon-colored, and sugar dissolves. Decrease speed to low and beat in Marsala until combined.

Set bowl over a pan of barely simmering water (pan should not touch water). Cook yolk mixture, beating constantly with mixer on medium speed until thickened, forms a ribbon when beaters are lifted, and a thermometer inserted into mixture registers 145° for 3 minutes, about 810 minutes total. (Don’t cook zabaglione too long or it might curdle.)

Off heat, stir in whipped cream and vanilla.

Serve zabaglione warm (immediately) or chill completely; top with strawberries and cookies just before serving.
