Cold brew Iced Latte
Coldbrew Iced latte can quickly evolve from summer indulgence to expensive habit. Try the speedy & easy at-home version. This coffee is smooth, delicious and refreshing.
- Cold-brew coffee concentrate
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 1 teaspoon jaggery sugar
Fill a cocktail shaker with plain ice, skim milk and sugar. Make ice cubes from one part cold-brew coffee concentration and two parts water. Vigorously shake until foamy. (The sugar makes the milk thick and frothy — you’ll be amazed at how well this works.) Put the coffee ice cubes in a glass and add ¼ cup cold-brew coffee concentration. Strain foamed milk on top and relish every sip.
Coffee Kahlúa Brownies
Coffee Kahlúa Brownies are rich, delicious, exotic and simply over the top! These super chocolaty treats have a combination of a fudge-like and cake-like texture with coffee in every bite!
- 8 ounces unsweetened chocolate, roughly chopped
- 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 5 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons finely ground coffee
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract/ essence
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 1/4 cups granulated sugar
- 1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour (maida)
- 2/3 cup hot coffee, strong brewed
- 1/4 cup Kahlúa (Kahlúa is a coffee-flavored liquor, and when it’s added to a recipe with chocolate and coffee, it intensifies flavors)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and use 1 tablespoon of butter to grease the baking pan. Melt the chocolate and butter together in a heavy-bottomed saucepan, over low heat. Stir occasionally and heat until the chocolate and butter are completely melted together. Remove from the heat, and set aside to cool to room temperature. In a large bowl, beat the eggs with sugar, coffee grounds, vanilla and salt at high speed for 5 minutes. Then on low speed, add the cooled chocolate mixture and beat only until mixed. Add the flour and again beat until mixed. Next, in a small bowl combine hot chocolate with the
Kahlúa and pour the mixture into the batter. Mix to blend. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and place it in the preheated 350 degree F oven. Bake until the edges look solid and there is no movement in the center. Let the brownies cool at least to room temperature before serving.
