No matter your preference, black coffee can be both — a classic drink and a versatile ingredient. Get creative with black coffee to create these decadent and tasty coffee desserts at home; here are some simple recipes to get you started!
A Japanese dessert made from black coffee and gelatin, coffee jelly created a Japanese chain coffee shop branch in the 1960s. It became a hit among the Japanese as a refreshing summertime treat with a light texture and delicate bittersweet flavours.
Make this dessert at home — all you need is strong black coffee, powdered gelatin, and water. First, create a mixture by combining gelatin powder with some water in a small bowl. Then, sweeten the black coffee with some sugar while heating it in a saucepan, bringing it to a near boil over medium-high heat. After that, please turn off the heat and whisk in the gelatin mixture until it dissolves. Set aside to cool before pouring the mixture into a baking dish and refrigerate until set. Once it is set, please take out the coffee jelly and cut it into small cubes. Spoon the cubes into individual serving dishes and top with whipped cream and fresh fruits if desired!
