Think Berlin. You've just been to the zoo with the kids, it's hot and they are clamoring for ice cream. You find seats at the sidewalk café down the block and you sink into one of their straight backed chairs, ready for a treat. This eiskaffee is it. Cold coffee and cream never tasted so good.
This recipe for Eiskaffee makes 2 servings.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
- 2 c. cold coffee
- 1/4 c. evaporated milk
- 2-3 tsp. sugar
- 1 c. vanilla ice cream
- 1 c. unsweetened whipped cream (about 1/2 cup unwhipped)
Mix the coffee, evaporated milk and sugar to taste until sugar dissolves. Chill thoroughly.
Place 1/2 cup of vanilla ice cream in each of the bottoms of two tall glasses. Pour the chilled coffee over it and top with whipped cream. The cream can be sweetened to taste but traditionally, it is unsweetened.
Serve immediately. It doesn't get any better than this.
