DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium-size bowl, stir the hot coffee, sugar, and orange zest until the sugar dissolves.
  • Cool.
  • Stir in the vanilla.
  • Transfer the liquid to a shallow bottomed bowl or square metal cake pan and place in the freezer.
  • Wait about 30 to 40 minutes, until the sides start to freeze, then stir the mixture gently with a wooden spoon, especially around the edges.
  • Put the granita back in the freezer and repeat the stirring every 20 to 30 minutes, until the mixture is grainy-frozen.
  • Transfer to well-chilled bowls – the chilled bowls are important, especially in summer, to prevent it from melting; in fact, chill your spoons too.
  • Serve, garnished with whipped cream if desired.
