Cafe liegeois

    1 hour 15 min

    Café liégeois is a classic French dessert, essentially a sophisticated, grown-up take on a sundae. The key to a good Café liégeois is good quality espresso, and chilling it well in advance. You could even bring it home from a coffee shop and chill it in the fridge till you need it!

    3. Take the bowl out of the freezer and add the whipped cream into the cold bowl. Whip the cream and add the icing and vanilla sugar when peaks start to form. Whisk until very firm.
    4. Pour the coffee into the glasses in equal parts. Add the coffee ice cream and top with whipped cream.

    If you don't have vanilla sugar to hand, simply increase the icing sugar by a tablespoon and add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
