Today I want to share the recipe of my favorite Italian summer dessert is the Coffee Granita - Granita di Caffe!
It is my grandma's recipe: she was used to prepare it almost every day and it was our afternoon dessert!
Ingredients for 2 people:
4 cups Cups Espresso Coffee at room temperature
4 tablespoons Tbsp Sugar (you can use more or less depending on how sweet you like it. I find that 4 Tbsp isn't too sweet at all!)
Pour the coffee and sugar into a shallow baking. Cover with cling wrap and place in the freezer for 4-6 hours.
Rake with a fork, focusing on the sides every hour making sure the mixture never freezes solid.
The granita is done when it reaches the texture of ice flakes.
Spoon into cups and top with fresh whipped cream.
