This Affogato coffee dessert is ideal to have on National Coffee Day with its espresso base and decadent vanilla flavoring. The dessert is known as a drowned coffee drink that douses homemade frozen custard with a creamy shot of espresso that turns the ice cream into a milky caffeinated liquid.
This Affogato is a rich dessert with two components including the homemade ice cream and rich espresso shot. The frozen custard is made from milk, heavy cream, salt, egg yolks, sugar and a fresh vanilla bean. The mixture is brought to a boil, strained and then tossed into an ice cream maker to churn it into a velvety ice cream. To serve, the ice cream is scooped into a cup and tolled with a shot of espresso. The dessert is meant to be served immediately so eaters can taste the contrasting temperatures.
