Cronut creator has come up with waffle-inspired dessert.
New York pastry chef Dominique Ansel has launched another headline-grabbing dessert: the Waffogato, an innovative twist on the classic Italian post-meal treat affogato, in which strong hot espresso is poured over a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
In Ansel’s version, affogato is made into a breakfast treat as vanilla ice cream takes the shape of a waffle and is made with Belgium waffle bits. Over the cold creamy bar, he pours maple syrup-scented espresso.
Then, as the ice cream melts, tapioca pearls are revealed and float in the pool of melted vanilla ice cream, he explains on Instagram.
The dessert was created for a charity event in New York.
