Okay, okay. Don’t freak out! this is an easy one, believe me.
Holidays are one of my most awaited moment. Aside from clothes, food is one of my favorites! This time though, I volunteered to make coffee jelly.
I was not made to cook, that’s for sure. But the future kinda freaks me out. I am a woman, and soon, I’ll have a family of my own. I don’t want my child to eat at the neighbor’s house and tell me later that day that his friend was so lucky because his mom cooks real good.
Well, you get the idea. That’s why I wanted to learn how to cook.
Anyway, as I was getting started in cooking, I wanted to cook easy recipes first just to make myself comfortable in the kitchen.
And so, My recipe goes like this:
2 packs lychee flavored gelatin (you can use unflavored, but lychee flavored ones are what makes the coffee jelly so good!)
1 1/2 cup sugar
3 1/2 tbs coffee
250 ml heavy cream
250 ml condensed milk
*that one can in the picture is already a combination of Condensed milk and heavy cream. Amazing, isn’t it?
1.) in a hollow pan, mix the powdered gelatin until no residues can be seen. (don’t heat it yet!)
2.) when the gelatin is fully mixed, bring the mixture to a boil
3.) add the sugar and coffee and mix it just as you would mix your regular black coffee every morning. Taste it and see if it favors your taste. If not, you may add what’s still missing.
4.) if the mixture is well-mixed, remove the pan and transfer the mixture to bowls or square pans.
5.) allow to cool before putting it to the refrigerator.
6.) once cooled and firm, cut it to squares. It doesn’t need to be even, though.
7.) mix the jellies with the condensed milk and heavy cream
8.) put it in the fridge again until cool.
9.) Once settled, its ready to eat! Yay!
10.) Enjoy your revolutionary coffee Jelly. 🙂
I swear, this is so good that my mom and neighbors actually loved it! And to top it all off, this is an original recipe. haha!
