Found this in a Wiki for Omani desserts and couldn't resist bringing it home. Calorie counters stay away from this one! The coffee is mixed into whipped cream. Serving number and timing is a guess on this one. It sounds delish but I would use it more as a topping than as a dessert in it's self.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee (or 2 Tbsp strong brewed hot coffee)
  • 280 ml chilled double cream (heavy cream, 9.5 oz)
  • 60 g chopped mixed nuts (2 oz)
  • 4 teaspoons brown sugar (or to your liking)

Directions

  1. Dissolve the coffee in two tablespoons of boiling water, and leave to cool.
  2. Toast nuts lightly under the grill or in a pan and let cool.
  3. Whip the cream well, fold in the coffee mixture and the toasted nuts.
  4. Pour into glasses, then sprinkle each with brown sugar.
  5. Let it stand for at least 15 minutes, unrefrigerated, to allow the sugar to mix in with the cream, then serve.
