Bill Granger recipe: Espresso granita
Sunday 26 January 2014
Make sure you keep servings small or the caffeine will have you bouncing off the walls. Taste the coffee after adding the sugar and adjust the sweetness to your taste. It should taste sweeter than you would drink it, as the sweetness will mellow once frozen.
750ml freshly made espresso or strong coffee
100g demerara sugar
Whipped cream, to serve
Coffee beans, chopped, to serve
Sweeten the hot coffee with the demerara sugar, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool. Freeze for about 2 hours, or until it is solid around the edge and slushy in the middle.
Use a fork to stir the outside crystals into the centre. Return to the freezer and freeze for 30 minutes.
Remove and repeat the stirring process, continuing to do this every half hour or so until the whole mix is in evenly sized crystals.
Serve the granita in cups, topped with whipped cream and crushed coffee beans.
