(Sweets And Cakes) - (The Cook's Decameron: A Study In Taste)

Ingredients: Eggs, sugar, Marsala, Maraschino or other light-coloured

liqueur, sponge fingers.

Zabajone is a kind of syllabub. It is made with Marsala and Maraschino,

or Marsala and yellow Chartreuse. Reckon the quantities as follows: for

each person the yolks of three eggs, one teaspoonful of castor sugar to

each egg, and a wine-glass of wine and liqueur mixed. Whip up the yolks

of the eggs with the sugar, then gradually add the wine. Put this in

a bain-marie, and stir until it has thickened to the consistency of a

custard. Take care, however, that it does not boil. Serve hot in custard

glasses, and hand sponge fingers with it.

substituted), and allow the mixture to thicken. Serve hot in champagne
