    Ingredients

    • 250ml (9fl oz) Champagne, Cava or sparkling wine

    • 4 medium egg yolks
    • 2 medium eggs

    Method

    • Combine all the ingredients except the berries in a large heatproof bowl and set over a pan of gently simmering water.

    Top tip for making Champagne berry zabaglione

    Top tip: Maybe it does seem a little indulgent to open a bottle of Champagne to make a dessert. But if you pour the remainder into glasses with a splash of crème de cassis, it's a great accompaniment to the zabaglione. Alternatively, you can always buy a half bottle, or use cava or prosecco.
