A classic Italian affogato is pretty simple, yet the perfect after-dinner sweet treat for any coffee lover.
It can be kept basic for the traditional coffee and ice cream combination or jazzed up with a sprinkle of chocolate, cinnamon or even just a different flavour of ice cream if you’re willing to try the combination.
The literal meaning of affogato is ‘drowning’, so the idea is to drown the ice cream with the coffee.
The below is for one serving. It is perfect served in a glass.
