fresh berries with sabayon sauce
PREPARATION: 10 MINUTES, COOKING: 15 MINUTES
1 cup (250 g) strawberries or blueberries
1 cup (125 g) raspberries
3 egg yolks
1/3 cup (80 g) superfine sugar
1/2 cup (125 ml) brandy, rum or orange-flavored liqueur
1 Hull the strawberries, and divide the strawberries and raspberries among four dessert glasses.
2 Put the egg yolks and sugar in a heatproof bowl and whisk to combine. Place the bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water (or use a double boiler) and cook gently, whisking constantly, for 2–3 minutes, or until warm and creamy.
3 Whisking continuously, add the brandy in a thin steady stream, and continue to whisk for another 10–12 minutes, or until the sauce is thick. Remove from the heat.
4 Spoon the sabayon sauce over the berries and serve immediately. You can serve this dessert on its own, or accompany it with crisp dessert biscuits.
