Check this out, saw Nigella making this on her show and it's really the easiest dessert to make in the world. The word 'Affogato' literally means 'drowned' in Italian, and what you have is either ice cream or gelato drowned in hot, steaming espresso.
Oops, ice cream melted a little by the time I took the above pix. Anyway, it's real easy, as long as you have an espresso machine and vanilla ice cream, you are set to go. Made it after dinner, it's just heavenly, all the more so when you know you did it yourself. Oh yah, I just found out another friend has bought a Nespresso too, just last week. Geez, this thing is really catching on. <^;^>
Well, think I scooped too little ice cream this first time, I mean, I looked at some of the online affogato pix, they are like, two big scoops per serving.
