I can’t believe that I haven’t done this before and for that I’m totally sorry.
I was reading the wonderful, http://mamachromatic.com/ blog the other day (you should go there now-I’ll wait, hmmmmm, hmmm, hmmm, Ok!) and clicked on a button.
I loved it so much that I’ve added it into my blog but I don’t feel right having it here without mentioning where it is from. I totally thought that I had but now I realize I didn’t and am, in fact, a big heal.
Now onto something tasty and with espresso in it so it must be really good. Factor in chocolate and the fact that I get to use my blow torch and I’ll be a really happy girl.
I love to bake but I just can’t do it in the weather so…
Heat 3/4 cup of whole milk and 1 package of Starbucks coffee (I would guess that about 2 T. of any instant coffee would work nicely).
Add the hot milk into the egg yolks slowly (whisk like heck or you will have scrambled eggs).
Sprinkle with sugar (about 2 tsp/ramekin) and get out your blowtorch. I don’t have a fancy kitchen one. This is the same that we also repair plumbing with.
