Affogato al caffe (vanilla Ice cream & coffe)








Affogato is a traditional Italian espresso-based treat.
The name is Affogato al caffe. The dessert consists of a scoop of ice cream with a shot of hot espresso poured over the top.
The basic recipe has a large number of variations- using different coffe drinks or different Ice cream flavors.
And is easy and delicious!

  7. I'm not a big fan of the taste of coffee (although I love the smell!), but when it's subtly mixed into a dessert, I love it. This looks and sounds delicious!
