Today is a busy day - in just a few hours, I am heading off to Greg Pincus' social networking training camp, sponsored by SCBWI WWA. Caffeine will be essential to survival!
Luckily friend and fellow 2010 debuter Holly Schindler (watch for A BLUE SO DARK in 2010!) came to the rescue with her recipe for Coffee Jelly. Holly says:
I'm an insane coffee junkie (I actually think that coffee and WRITING are a more delicious duo than coffee and donuts)! My love of coffee has even started to bleed into the dessert world. Here's a super easy recipe:
What you need:
1 envelope unflavored gelatine
1/2 cup cold water
1/3 cup granulated sugar
Dash of salt
1 cup hot coffee
1 teaspoon lemon juice
In a medium bowl, sprinkle gelatine over cold water. Add sugar, salt, and hot coffee. Stir until gelatine dissolves. Stir in lemon juice. Refrigerate until set. Serve topped with whipped cream.
Voila! A coffee dessert fit for a writer who's spent the entire day pounding the keyboard...
