Fresh Melon with Lavender Sabayon Recipe

8 servings, ready in 30 minutes

Place yolks, SPLENDA® Granulated, lemon, lavender and 1/4 cup (60 mL) heavy cream in a small mixing bowl. Whisk until smooth.

Heat water in the bottom half of a double boiler over medium high heat until simmering. Pour sauce into the top of a double boiler and place over the simmering water. Cook 50-60 seconds, whisking constantly, until the mixture begins to thicken and reaches 170°F (77°C). Remove from heat immediately. Pour mixture into a large mixing bowl. Set aside

Pour remaining cream and the creme fraiche into a medium mixing bowl. Whisk together until blended. Slowly stir cream mixture into egg yolk mixture. Stir, using a whisk, until blended.
