This morning, for some reason I was daydreaming of the colors, scents and appeal of the Medina souks that I would love to visit in Morocco. As I was starting my morning coffee I reached for the Ras El Hanout on impulse and put about a 1/2 tsp into my personal one cup maker along with the coffee. The result is a real delight. UPDATE (1/20/14) I just made this again and it occurred to me that Ras el Hanout mix can be made in almost infinite variety thus effecting the flavor of the coffee. This is the one that I use: Recipe #262189
This is my current favorite coffee. I created it for my taste inspired by the amazing spices and flavors of North Africa and the Middle East. It's a bit indulgent and something that you can very easily adjust the ingredient amounts of to match your own taste. Time given may be slightly longer if using an Ibrik.
With Morocco's heat ice cream is much enjoyed these days. I think that you might well enjoy this too. Cinnamon is native to Morocco and coffee is considered indispensable. Cinnamon has been known there from remote antiquity, and it was so highly prized among ancient nations that it was regarded as a gift fit for monarchs and other great potentates.The optional figs pair amazingly with the ice cream.
Anyone who's ever dropped into a Tim Horton's for a morning snack can testify to the appeal of coffee and a doughnut. Here, yeast doughnuts with a touch of cinnamon get an extra jolt of flavor from a sweet espresso glaze. Times given do not include rising time.
This is a special latte and is so worth making the syrup and vanilla sugar in advance for. The vanilla sugar is wonderful to always have on hand, use it in baking, for topping scones, special coffee's, etc. Just sit back with your feet up and enjoy this exquisite latte with a great book or with a friend along with some juicy gossip.
The Persian Gulf was the location for given with this recipe. It should be appropriate to pretty much all of North Africa and the Middle East though. If your not familiar with rose water go very easy with it to start (no more than 2 Tbsp) and add more if you wish. Rose water is potent.
"Sweet coffee, candy and nut clusters in chocolate.
Not a recipe for the novice candy maker. You won't regret the effort, though. These crunchy nutty treats are better than cookies and won't last long once your guests try one!. " This is the heading on the recipe I found in and old cookbook hidden in the back room at work. I have updated the instructions but the ingredients are the same (I'm guessing that it goes back to the 20's). Anyway, it said nothing at all about time or the amount this will make. The times and amount given is a total guess on my part. I'm posting because I really want to try this recipe this Christmas season.
Taste-testers (my family) have deemed this a great muffin! They are moist and delicious with a touch of spice from the cinnamon and nutmeg with the awesome flavor of the espresso coffee shining through. Great for brunch, dessert (with ice cream), or snacks, and they also freeze well. Make them standard size or mini as you please.
