A little treat from 30 Minute Meals: a black forest affogato. If I can’t manage a dessert at an Italian restaurant, I’ll try and make room for an affogato – an espresso tipped over a vanilla ice cream. Simple but tasty. The addition of cherries and chocolate to this makes it brilliant. Give it a try!
Black forest affogato:
1 tablespoon of instant coffee
3 teaspoons sugar
Some shortbread, crumbled
A big scoop of good vanilla ice cream per person
A tin of cherries, drained
Some dark chocolate, chopped or grated
- Put some shortbread at the bottom of the bowl. Plop some ice cream on top, dot with cherries and scatter liberally with chocolate.
- Mix the coffee and sugar with boiling water, and splash over enough coffee to get things melting.
