Affogato al caffè
(Vanilla ice cream & coffee)
- 12 scoops good-quality vanilla ice cream
- 6 shots hot espresso coffee
- Several hours in advance, scoop ice cream into 12 balls. Lay ice cream on a freezer-proof tray and put the tray back in the freezer.
- To serve, put 2 balls of ice cream into 6 small mugs, glasses or bowls, and pour a shot of hot espresso coffee over each. Serve straight away, stirring the vanilla ice cream into the hot coffee so that it melts a little.
