Mango Zabaglione (Warm Italian Custard)

Ingredients to make Mango Zabaglione (Warm Italian Custard)

  • egg Yolks – 4
  • White sugar – 10 gm for each egg yolk/1 tbsp, i.e 40 gm or 4 tbsp
  • Marsala or Prosecco – 4 tbsp (I replaced this with 3 tbsp of hot espresso)
  • A splash of dark rum
  • mango pulp as per choice
  • Orange jelly as desired
  • Orange segments of 1 to 2 oranges

How to make Mango Zabaglione (Warm Italian Custard)

  1. Prepare a bain-marie; in a large heat-proof bowl, add the egg yolks and sugar.
  2. Set the water on boil, and then turn down heat to let it simmer gently.
  3. Use a whisk, either handheld or electric and start whipping the egg yolks and sugar until it’s almost double in volume (might take up to 8 minutes).
  4. Add the marsala or prosecco, or in my case, the espresso.
  5. Also add the mango pulp here, ensure no lumps remain.
  6. Let the mixture thicken (say another 2 to 3 minutes), and take it off the heat. The eggs continue to cook in the residual heat, so do not overcook them.
  7. Lastly, add the splash of rum, give it a light whisk with a spoon.
  8. Prepare serving glasses with orange segments, jelly and then, when the custard is still warm, but not boiling hot, pour over the fruit and jelly, and serve with biscotti, or plain.

My Tip:

You can skip the espresso and replace with Marsala or any sweet wine.
