Orange Charlotte with Chocolate Porto Sabayon



We spend a lot of time watching and whining that in the end we sometimes forget to see the essentials of life. I woke up this morning and realised that despite all my ups and downs, my life is still tasty and delicious. And I know no matter what I am looking forward on much daunting life ahead of me. And that is how my mid-thirty's head work when it turns one year older :-)

Happy Birthday to me!! And don't ask me how young I am for I stopped counting long long time ago!!

I'll spill you the details of my romantic-gastronomic escapade with husband which will take place tomorrow in the meantime if you are curious to know the story of my birth you can check out my old post on this link. See you all soon!

This is my entry for this month's holiday edition of Sugar High Friday hosted by Cherappeno. Charlotte and Sabayon are perfect holiday sweet treats for they are very easy to prepare and yet never fail to impress guests. Sugar High Friday is sweetest blog event ever created by Jennifer of The Domestic Goddess.




Orange Charlotte with Chocolate Porto Sabayon

Chocolate Porto Sabayon Recipe

Sabayon or Zabaglione is an italian cream perfect for your citrus fruit salads. I just added some chocolate and porto to make this sauce even perfect for my charlotte

8 egg yolks
8 tablespoons of sugar
a pinch of salt
1 cup of heavy cream
100 gram of bittersweet chocolate
2 tablespoons of Porto (optional)

In a saucepan melt your chocolate with your heavy cream. Set aside. In another saucepan put your egg yolks, sugar and salt. Whisk over low fire constantly until it becomes and creamy and double in volum. Add the porto wine. Fold in the chocolate mixture until it becomes evenly distributed. You can put them in verrine glasses and serve with your slice of charlotte.

Happy birthday! Mid-thirties?!?!? I could have sworn that you were in your early twenties. Seriously, I didn't think you were older than I am. You look GOOD.

This is an excellent looking dessert. Sabayons are one of my favorite pastries to order from the local bakery. I'm so impressed that you made these at home.
