 Affogato Al Caffe Recipe  

Coffee affogato (Afogato Shot) – After tasting Affogato al
Caffe, you will undoubtedly experience knee trembling and say
“aff-o-gaaaato, gel-aaaa-to, es-preeeess-o” in your best imitation of
an Italian accent. (Holy Crud!) Merda Santa!

Recipe for affogato al caffe

The Italians are known for their ability to make a simple
treat provoke a strong reaction.

You may be familiar with the fable of Julia Child shunning
Italian cuisine because she didn’t think it represented true cookery. No
offence to Julia, but the simplicity of the majority of Italian cuisine is what
appeals to me.

In general, Italian cuisine emphasises on the ingredients
rather than the cook.

A tomato-based cuisine should, in theory, maintain the fresh
tomato’s authenticity. not muddle it with a myriad of other flavours. Italians
respect their cuisine by cooking straightforward dishes.


I admit that I was a little “stravagante” when
creating this Italian dessert. I apologise, but I couldn’t resist. I added some
Kahlua (mocha liquor), shavings of dark chocolate and gelato to the espresso.
Shameful. *wink*

Such a straightforward yet “stravagante” dessert
has the power to either save a dinner party, ignite a romantic relationship,
mend a broken heart, keep you up at night working on a project, or get you in
hot water. Use this one with caution. POWERFUL Affogato al Caffe.

coffee,” is a tasty delicacy with a lot of flavour! It’s like an adult ice

Questions and Answers

What toppings, besides chocolate shavings, may I add?

Biscotti, pistachios, hazelnuts, almonds, chocolate sauce,
and caramel sauce are additional toppings that would be wonderful as a garnish
for this recipe.


Yes, this recipe is gluten-free as are the majority of gelatos.


These two coffee-based Italian drinks are similar to one
another, but they are not the same. Espresso is a potent coffee beverage
created by applying pressure to hot water as it passes through ground coffee
beans. A scoop of vanilla ice cream or gelato is combined with espresso to
create the Italian delicacy known as an affogato. What makes a difference,
then? Gelato!
