Christmas Fruit Cake Affogato

Christmas Fruit Cake Affogato

Christmas Fruit Cake Affogato

From one of our in-house chefs, Carlos Bruni: “This is one of my favourite desserts to make at home; it’s my take on the classic Italian affogato, that will use up that leftover Christmas fruit cake. This recipe also works well using mince pies as a substitute for cake.”

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 4-6 hours freeze time
Serves: 6

Method

Place the ice cream in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat for 1 min or until creamy and smooth.

Add the cake and beat until just combined.

Spoon into a loaf tin and freeze for 4-6 hours or until frozen.

Scoop ice cream into chilled glasses (you can do this an hour or so ahead of serving; store them in the freezer).

Pour the espresso directly over the ice cream, and serve immediately.

Ingredients

2 cups (500mls) vanilla ice cream, chopped

250 grams Christmas fruit cake, crumbled

 

To serve

160mls espresso coffee, cold or hot
