  • . > (American / Metric measures) <
  • . 3 large egg yolks
  • . 3 tbsp. (42g) granulated sugar
  • . 6 tbsp. (90ml) Marsala wine*
  • . * Other Flavouring choices: Grand Marnier, Madeira, Sherry and also Espresso brewed coffee.


  1. . In a large glass or stainless steel bowl, whisk the egg yolks and sugar. The Marsala should be incorporated last. Then set over a pot of hot, simmering water and whisk until the custard becomes lightened and thick enough to leave ribbon trails behind. This should take about 5 minutes of constant whisking. Note: make sure the water doesn’t get too hot...otherwise, the cream will turn grainy.
  2. . This velvety cream sauce can either be served warm or have it cooled. Note: If serving it cold, don’t forget to whisk it every so often, otherwise it will start separating. Enjoy with fruits, sponge cake, lady fingers and as an ice-cream topping.
