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.
