Holiday Cafe-Au-Lait

Posted by Solitary Dancer on December 28, 2006

Holiday Cafe-Au-Lait

Someone sent this to me in email and it just sounded so good I thought I would post it with the hopes that the substitutions I added would work.

What do you think?

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 cups whole milk (Use 3/4 cup water and 3/4 cup heavy cream)
2/3 cup plus 1 teaspoon sugar (substitute with granular Splenda)
1/2 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
2 ( 2-inch) cinnamon sticks
1 strip orange peel about 1/2 inch by 3 inches
10 whole cloves
2 to 2 1/2 cups hot brewed strong coffee
1/4 cup cold heavy cream
Ground cinnamon
Cocoa, for garnish

DIRECTIONS: Don’t forget to insert the substitutions for the original ingredients

In a medium saucepan, whisk together the milk, 2/3 cup of the sugar, and cocoa until smooth.

Add the cinnamon sticks, orange peel and cloves and bring to a simmer, stirring, to dissolve the sugar and prevent the cocoa from sticking to the bottom of the pot.

Simmer for 2 minutes, then remove from the heat, cover, and let steep for 10 minutes.

In a medium bowl, whip the cream with the remaining 1 teaspoon sugar until thick and frothy, and peaks form.

Set aside.

Strain the milk mixture into a coffee pot or carafe and add 2 cups of the hot coffee (2 1/2 cups for stronger coffee flavor, to taste).

Pour into cups or small mugs and top each with a dollop of the sweetened whipped cream. Serve immediately
