1 1/2 Tbspunsulphered molasses (it offers the best flavor over sulphered molasses)
2 tspbrown sugar
1/2 tspground cinnamon
1/4 tspground ginger
1 cuphot coffee (strong brew is best)
1 Tbsphalf & half or light cream
2 Tbspsweetened whipped cream (from a can)
1/4 tspground cloves (or try my favorite, using half cloves and half nutmeg)
How to Make Gingerbread Coffee
- In a hot beverage mug, mix together the molasses, brown sugar, and ginger.
- Add hot coffee (to reach about 3/4 inch from the top), and stir well to dissolve the molasses and sugar. Stir in the half & half (or cream).
- Top with a generous mound of whipped cream (I used canned, for convenience). Then sprinkle a light dusting of cloves on the whipped cream. Serve immediately while still piping hot.
