One of the simplest desserts ever and a really great one. The traditional Italian dessert affogato al caffè, which literally means “coffee drowned ice cream”, isn’t in fact a recipe. It is about bringing together two things: excellent espresso coffee and great vanilla ice cream in the right amount in order to get the right flavor, feeling and texture: 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream and 1 shot of espresso…… Sometimes one scoop or single coffe aren’t enough, so multiple as needed.
