Zabaglione Recipe – The Delicious Italian Yellow Custard

Authentic Italian Recipes from Nonna Box

Zabaglione is traditionally served with fresh, ripe figs and, in Italy, is known as zabaione or zabajone – the name varies depending on the country. It may have originated in Venice where honey was used instead of sugar, but most likely Piedmont is the Italian region of origin.

Some say the Italian dessert dates back to 1471, when Captain Baglioni (often called ‘Zvàn Bajòun’), short of food, managed to muster up random ingredients of eggs, sugar and wine, with which he made this creamy concoction.

I am a writer. My works are featured and sold at amazon.com through book sales. I have a few locations where I can be found on the internet but no website per se for any good reason of my works yet. Principally, following me on to Facebook (at Facebook.com/redcrosse10999), links visitors to other sites that are basically the same redundancy as the Facebook location. I hope to have a redcrosse10999.com website someday, but that isn't in my immediate plans at this time. (Meanwhile, you may visit my other blogs at both brutimperialantarctica.blogspot.com -- which is a Blogger site by Google & also at brutimperialantarctica.wordpress.com -- which is another native of WordPress, which I believe may also be a Google company. But my Facebook page has a sidebar link set that will help you navigate to other pages which may or may not be included links on any of these (interesting) blogs. Have a happy day! (I wish I had an emoji for this bio. Very little else is interesting with me.)
