Piedmont Recipes - Zabajone
Before I get onto this zabajone recipe I want to let you in on a secret.

2) Whip this up lightly over a low heat until it is nearly
boiling and very slightly frothy; then remove it from the stove, remove
the cinnamon, vanilla, and lemon peel, and whip up all the remaining

Serve with sponge cakes or iced wafers.
