a good cup of coffeei have been limiting my caffeine intake since last new year's day...well-timed as i got pregnant soon after and am now nursing. so i really enjoy a good cup (or half a cup) of coffee. i saw giada on the ellen show and she made this fabulous spiced coffee that is just delicious. i have since made it a few times, topped with whipped cream, and dusted with cinnamon. i could actually go for a cup right now...
Spiced Coffee with Cinnamon
Recipe courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis
1 cup sugar
¼ teaspoon ground allspice
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
2 cups double strength brewed coffee (Giada's Blend)
Vegan whipped cream (Available at health food stores like Whole Foods) - i used regular whipped cream
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and ½ cup water. Bring to a boil over medium heat and reduce heat to low. Add the allspice, cinnamon, and ginger and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the sugar is dissolved.
Take the pan off the heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the spiced syrup to each cup of coffee and stir to combine. (Optional: Top each cup with a dollop of vegan whipped cream.)
Dust with additional cinnamon and serve.
Makes: 4 servings
