Servings: 8

Active time: 15 minutes

Total time:


  • 2 c whole milk
  • 4 Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized egg yolk(s)
  • 2/3 c granulated sugar
  • 1 c espresso coffee (made either with an espresso machine or a stovetop Moka)


  1. Pour milk into a saucepan and place over medium-low heat. Heat just until steam is released when stirred—do not let it come to a boil.
  2. While milk is heating, place egg yolks and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and whip until creamy and pale yellow.

Pasteurized equals peace of mind

Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized eggs taste great and are safe for all your favorite egg dishes! Davidson's gentle water bath pasteurization reduces the risk of Salmonella in eggs without changing the nutrition or flavor. In fact, Davidson's pasteurized eggs have earned the Seal of Approval for exceptional flavor and culinary performance from the American Culinary Federation (ACF).

The Raw Egg Risk

Davidson's eggs aren't just good for sunny-side up or poached eggs. Consider all the recipes that feature raw eggs, like eggnog, Caesar salad dressing, raw cookie dough, custard and more. Take homemade ice cream, for example. Over a four-year period, more than 500 illnesses in the US were traced to Salmonella bacteria in homemade ice cream, according to the CDC. The ingredient at fault? Raw or undercooked eggs.
