Hello, I'm Beth and I blog at dot in the city. I'm honored to be visiting y'all at From the Guest Room today! I love to cook and bake, so I thought it would be fun to share a favorite family recipe that originated with my great grand. It's a perfectly refreshing dessert for summer, coffee gelatin!
You'll need the following ingredients:
1 cup strong coffee
1 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 envelope gelatin
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs, separated
dash of salt
Soften gelatin in half of milk in pan.
Add coffee, rest of milk, sugar and salt to double boiler over heat using (but do not let boil).
Remove from heat once sugar is nearly dissolved.
Divide eggs and add yolks to coffee mixture. Let stand.
Beat egg whites in separate bowl until stiff.
Pour coffee mixture slowly over egg whites while beating. Add vanilla.
Divide among four glass dishes and chill, about two hours until gelled.
A special thanks to Kate for having me today! I hope you enjoy this recipe and it becomes a family/summer favorite for you too. -Beth from dot in the city
