  • 1/2 lb mixed fresh berries
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 150 ml Prosecco or your choice of sparkling juice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 6 biscuits crushed into crumbs


  1. Make sure you have 4 nice glasses or bowls to serve the fruits and sabayon in. Then fill a saucepan half-full with water over medium heat and bring to a simmer.
  2. Place all the sabayon ingredients in a medium stainless steel bowl and whisk until well combined. Place the bowl over the saucepan and continue to whisk until the sauce is thick and doubled in volume, 3 to 5 minutes. The sauce should be thick enough so that it will support a ribbon of sauce trailing off the end of the spoon when lifted.
  3. Then add a layer of crushed biscuits at the bottom of each glass, pop the fruit inside and spoon some of the sabayon over each one. Sprinkle some more crushed biscuits and serve.
