Hi Guys! Thanks again for everyone’s awesome support with my 5k. It was GREAT! We had a lot of fun and actually did okay. We both came in at 30:39…not the best time (by a loooooong shot) but we’re happy with it. Now it’s just prepping for the 10k in Santa Barbara next month…..we’ll see how it goes!
So we’ve totally been MIA from the blog and we apologize. We have a few things in the works sucking up all our time at the moment, but can’t wait to share them with you lovelies in the near and not so near future! Today we have a little something for a last minute, quick and easy v-day dessert. A simple sparkling sabayon! It’s a great dessert for those of you planning on staying in Friday night, like my dude and I…hello takeout and House of Cards marathon!! I love this dessert because it only requires three ingredients and literally takes no more than 10 minutes to make, start to finish. PLUS, you can just spoon this stuff into your mouth for a sweet, frothy, delightful treat or spoon some onto fresh fruit like we’ve done today.
The recipe actually results in a pretty thick, sit atop the fruit, froth, but since I let the mixture sit for a little while before we photographed it (whoops), some of the air in the Sabayon died. It’s all good though because it has no effect on the taste and I usually like mixing it all up together anyway.
We hope everyone has a great time celebrating or not celebrating V-Day and encourage you to try your hand at this totally easy and delicious dessert! Enjoy! xx, Jenny
Serves 4 to 6
3 large yolks
3 1/2 tablespoons superfine sugar (granulated is fine)
1/2 cup sparkling wine of your choice!
1. Fill a large pot with 2 to 3 inches of water and bring to a boil. Once water has been brought to a boil, lower the heat to simmer.
2. Place yolks and sugar into a heatproof bowl and whisk together until slightly thickened. Whisk in sparkling wine and set over pot of simmering water (ensuring that the water in the pot does not touch the bottom of the bowl).
3. Whisk mixture, constantly, until the mixture doubles in volume and is light and frothy, 6 to 8 minutes.
4. Spoon warm mixture into cups and serve OR spoon mixture over berries and serve.
