Recipe: Salted Caramel Affogato

SALTED CARAMEL AFFOGATO

This Italian dessert is banging and we've added so many twists. The ice cream mixture is infused with mascarpone and salted caramel making it, honestly, unbelievable. A cheeky optional idea we love is to mix your espresso shot with amaretto. Indulgent, silky and smooth. Make it, we dare you.

Ingredients

  • 250 g mascarpone cheese
  • 100 g caster sugar
  • 50 g caramel sauce
  • 1 tsp flaked sea salt
  • 50 ml good quality hot espresso
  • 25 ml amaretto
  • 1 tbsp roughly ground, good quality coffee beans
Make the Ice Cream

Step 1

Make The Ice Cream

Tip the mascarpone into a large mixing bowl with the sugar and caramel sauce. Blend it together using a hand whisk until smooth. Now add the salt a little at a time, tasting as you go to get the perfect sweet/salty balance for you. Cover the bowl with clingfilm and freeze for 4 hours, stirring every 30 minutes.

Assemble

Step 2

Assemble

Scoop the frozen mascarpone into a small bowl or cappuccino mug. Mix the hot coffee with the amaretto. Pour the hot coffee over then scatter over the ground beans. Serve! Serves 2 with ice cream left over.
