Tonight hubby and I are invited over to a friend’s house. They’re cooking dinner for us, so I decided to make some dessert to bring over:
Mini Strawberry Shortcake Cups. I was too lazy to make sponge cake from scratch today, so I just baked a box of yellow cake mix and layered with fresh whipped cream and diced strawberries into small plastic cups.
Coffee Jello Cups. Is this only a Japanese thing? Because if it is, it’s a shame. It’s so easy to make and delicious it should be made famous all over the world.
2tbsp instant coffee
Dash of coffee liqueur (optional)
1. Soak gelatin in 200ml water in a bowl. Set aside.
2. Bring 800ml water and sugar to a boil. Turn off heat and stir in instant coffee. Add gelatin and stir until fully dissolved. Add liqueur (optional). Let cool.
3. Ladle into glasses and let set in refrigerator.
4. Before serving, top with vanilla ice cream or simply pour on some heavy cream (if you go with this option, I recommend increasing the amount of sugar in the recipe). Even better, pour a little Kahlua or Baileys on top of the ice cream!
