Tiramisu Affogato Coffee Dessert Recipe

updated CB Disclosure White Background 600 px wide

This is a simple coffee dessert recipe that can be made for New Years Eve or anytime you have a occasion that calls for something a little indulgent. Based off the traditional Italian Tiramisu recipes, but with a twist by adding affogato. In Italian affogato means drowning. Typically those recipes use ice cream drowned in espresso. Put the two together and you have one deliciously decadent dessert, Tiramisu Affogato. Today I’ll show you how to make it and share my version of this coffee dessert recipe.

You will need a great coffee I picked up Ambiance Coffee and all my supplies in one shopping stop at my new local Smart & Final in Paso Robles, CA.

Ingredients you’ll need for Tiramisu Affogato Dessert Recipe:

  • Ambiance Kona Style Coffee or Ambiance Espresso Coffee 1 lb bag or larger if you like
  • A vanilla loaf cake 16 oz. = 10 slices  (or you can use  lady fingers  if preferred)
  • Heavy whipping cream 1 pint
  • Marscarpone Cheese 1 lb. container
  • Kahlua (you may make this without the Kahlua)
  • 1 large Semi Sweet Dark Chocolate Bar (or 2 if you add a chocolate slice to each glass or dessert dish)
  • Powdered cocoa

The amounts shown can easily make 6-10 servings.

First Brew up a pot of coffee. But, you won’t need the whole pot. The amounts for recipe will vary depending on how many dessert cups or glasses you make. You can have a cup of coffee while your working. It’s one of the perks!

Measuring Coffee and Kahlua_#shop_Theresa Huse 2013

Next I used a small french press to double brew strong coffee. Ratio two times coffee to amount of water/cup size. You want it strong! *Important: If you don’t have a french press just double brew a small amount of coffee 2 cups with the same  2-1 ratio but, do it prior to making your pot of coffee and set to side. Next take the double brewed coffee and for each dessert cup measure one tablespoon coffee and one tablespoon Kahlua. I just add mine to a glass and stir when amount I want is in the glass.

Grab your chilled heavy whipping cream. Measure 1 cup and whip until you have stiff peaks, add 1 tablespoon confectioners sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla mix in. Take 1 cup of your whip cream mixture and add into a new bowl. Next add 1 cup of Marscarpone Cheese to the whipping cream. Mix together. If it seems too stiff add more of your whipping cream, but you want it a little firm. Now Cut your loaves into four. Fill a dessert dish with them and pour a tablespoon of the double brew coffee mixture and Kahlua. Let it soak in.

Before the next steps you will make chocolate shavings.

Then I set up all my needed items nearby.

At this point if you want to get fancy you can transfer your soaked cakes into a pretty glass or just follow these same instructions for any of your dessert cups. Add two small scoops vanilla ice cream and one scoop of whip cream mixture. Next pour your regular brewed coffee into glass (if not tempered be sure to put a metal spoon in the side where you’ll be pouring, make sure coffee isn’t too hot) For the size martini glass I used here I used 1/4 cup of coffee. Next sprinkle cocoa powder onto dessert.

Add a piece of the chocolate if you have extra and your chocolate shavings / curls to the top. The martini glasses were larger so I used two pieces of the quartered and soaked vanilla loaf cake.

It’s easy to make a bunch in advance. Soak quarter pieces, add whipping mixture wrap until ready to finish. Then use same process but, just wait on adding the ice cream and coffee and final shavings to right before you are serving them! Then enjoy this easy to make Tiramisu Affogato.

      Hi Rebecca, Thanks for dropping by. I hope you try it sometime. You can make an espresso shot with the coffee and use that if you have an espresso machine. It would be just about the right amount, perfect for this Affogato recipe. That would be tasty too!
