It's 102º F (39º C) right now in Los Angeles. It's fair to say it's too (bloody) hot, right?
So, it's time for a refreshing Italian treat: Affogato al Caffè, which means "drowned in coffee".
This is incredibly easy and takes no time at all. All you need is coffee and vanilla ice-cream (whipped cream adds a crowing touch, but it's not necessary.)
AFFOGATO AL CAFFÈ
Ingredients for one serving:
one scoop of vanilla ice-cream
one shot of hot espresso
freshly whipped cream, optional
chocolate curls, shavings etc, optional
Place the ice cream in a serving glass, dish, etc. as
long as it is clear glass or plastic.
Pour the hot coffee over the ice cream.
Decorate with cream and chocolate, if desired.
I gave this Affogatto a British twist, by adding a piece of Flake!
You can't go wrong, any way you make it, it's deliciously refreshing!
