Aunt Valina’s cup

Hello folks,

This recipe reminds me when , during my childhood, I was used to enjoy a gelato cup called “Coppa Oro”.

I was in love with it!

Therefore, as a first experiment, I wanted to offer just a remake of this memory!

Here’s the recipe for “Aunt Valina’s” cup :


½ l. milk
65 gr. of cream
125 gr. sugar (if available, replace 50 gr. of sugar with dextrose)
15 gr. of milk powder
3 gr. of stabilizer
Pinch of salt
One vanilla pod


Mix all dry ingredients together and start stirring.

Add all liquids and, after a good mixing, pour everything in a saucepan adding one vanilla pod (cut length wise with a paring knife) and finally bring the mix up to 85 ° C (pasteurization) with the help of a thermometer.

Allow the emulsion to cool down.

Turn the ice cream maker , add the emulsion and let stir for about 30/40 min.

Let stand in the freezer for about 1 hour .

  • cherries in syrup
  • meringues


Take a cup and shed chopped meringues at the bottom and add 4/5 cherries with their syrup.

Add 3 scoops of gelato  and garnish with one cherry, a couple of tablespoons of cherries syrup and a few pieces of meringues.

Enjoy your gelato cup!
