I don’t claim to be a coffee expert by any means, but I do enjoy a latte or flavoured coffee (mmm…Starbucks). But they are expensive! I saw this pin for a homemade Gingerbread Latte. It looked easy enough, and I had all the ingredients on hand.
The first thing you do is make a syrup using molasses, brown sugar, and some spices. The syrup is quite thick, but it dissolves well in the hot coffee. It lasts for a few weeks in the fridge.
I kind of cheated, and this is where the real coffee experts will have issues…I used instant coffee! Gasp! Despite that, it turned out really good. I used an immersion blender to froth the milk and made a mess all over my stove… One last thing – I left out the 1 Tbsp of white sugar, and I’m glad I did. It was sweet enough.
The verdict….delicious. Head over here for the recipe.
