this was a wonderful pick me up in the afternoon. i always have cold coffee in the fridge, the ice cream and whipped cream made this a rich sweet snack. chocolate shavings gave it a mocha taste. very enjoyable
I served this beautiful drink to a group of ladies I really wanted to impress. And was everyone amazed! There were several non-coffee drinkers in the group, but after seeing how pretty the drink was, they changed their mind. I did make one change: I used hazelnut flavored coffee with a hazelnut cookie. This is a wonderful end to a great meal too. It makes your guests feel special.
This is a great way to enjoy coffee, thank you for reminding me at this recipe. Very refreshing and easy to make, I just prepared it for some friends. It looked very nice and everybody was happy. :-)
This is PERFECT!! I studied in Germany and travelled there and in Austria and Switzerland. This is one of the special things I brought back and I truly love it. Your recipe is the same as that of my German mother-in-law, except that we sweeten the coffee while it is hot, then let it cool before putting the Eiskaffee together. I have made this for many friends and every single one has loved it as I do. I think Food.com should allow an exclusive 6 stars for this.
My neighbor's children went to Dunkin Donuts and bought this iced coffee shake with whipped cream on top. When my 7-year-old saw that, he immediately wanted what they had, then I thought of trying this recipe. It is a yummy, creamy blend of flavors. Luckily, I had Dallmayr coffee, and all of the ingredients at hand to make Eiskaffee. Thank you for sharing this classic iced coffee recipe.
Ooooh, this is soo good! And so easy! It's a bit like a coffee milkshake, only better! I forgot to chill the coffee and just used some coffee left after guests had left. So it wasn't very "eis", but it sure hit the spot after a long day of cooking and cleaning and entertaining! Thank you so much for posting, HeatherFeather! Made for Comfort Cafe. UPDATE: I've since made this again, this time using cold coffee as called for, and it was even better. I also made on for DH using chocolate ice cream instead of vanilla, and he loved it! Thanks again, HeatherFeather!
AMAZING!!!!!!! I love this drink. I have been searching for a coffee drink for a while and havent found anything I like. But this is fantastic.
My grandmother in Switzerland used to make this for us in the summmer. She even had those special tall ice-cream spoons, that at the same time were straws so that you could drink the coffee without having to finish off first all the whipped cream on the top. I cannot thank you enough for bringing up those sweet memories of my childhood.
My aunt who is from Holland used to make this for me all the time when I was little. This is just how I remembered it tasting. thanks for posting!
When I was 15 I went to Germany and stayed with a family there and was served this wonderful drink. I was hooked but never knew exactly the measurements or procedure, so ended up coming home and making my own version which wasn't as good as the real thing. This is a very authentic rendition of this classic German treat. I agree with you that the quality of the ingredients makes the difference in how well this turns out. However, it also doesn't cost an arm and a leg to make it, even with good ingredients. Thank you for sharing this recipe. This is the real thing.
