Apple Cider Sabayon

Apple Cider Sabayon


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sparkling apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons Calvados a French apple brandy (regular brandy can be substituted)
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream 1/2 cup whipped


  • 1. Fill a medium stockpot a quarter of the way full with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let simmer. Fill a large bowl with ice water; set aside. Combine sugar and egg yolks in a large metal bowl, and whisk until mixture is pale and has a thick consistency, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add apple cider and brandy, and beat for 2 more minutes. (For best results, choose a metal bowl that just fits inside the pot.)

    2. Set the bowl over the simmering water. Whisk together for 6 to 8 minutes, until the sabayon thickens and is fluffy and slightly stiff. The sabayon should begin to look satiny and start sticking to the bowl slightly; air bubbles will become very fine instead of large and loose.

    3. Set bowl in ice-water bath. Continue whisking sabayon until chilled, about 3 minutes. Whip the cream to medium-stiff peaks, and fold into chilled sabayon. The sabayon can be stored in refrigerator for up to 24 hours.
