COFFEE CAPPUCCINO CREAMS WITH CREAM AND SWEET COFFEE SAUCE
Goodness! That's a long title for a dessert, but deserved it is.
I love coffee and have been longing to make these for a long, long time now.
Last weekend I had a few special meals to cook and it was an opportune time to make these.
These wonderful desserts have now made it to my list of 'I'm definitely going to make these again'.
First you put your spoon through the clouds of whipped cream laced in a sweet coffee sauce, then dip further into the smooth coffee mousse - need I say any more!
This wonderful recipe comes from Delia's How To Cook Book Two - ISBN 056338431X - Page 188.
Delia's recipe uses instant espresso powder for the mousse and the sweet coffee sauce.
Here is a link to Nigella Lawson's cappuccino cupcakes I made, way back in 2007, and fabulous they were too, this recipe also uses instant espresso powder. Also, here is a link to no less than 372 recipes which use espresso powder.
