This is from my Southern Living cookbook. It is a sweet dessert coffee.


  1. Combine half and half and syrup in a sauce pan over medium heat, stirring constantly until thoroughly heated (do not boil!).
  2. Stir in coffee.
  3. Serve with sweet whipped cream.

Mm this is delicious. I cut the recipe in half, but found it a bit too sweet for me. Maybe my maple syrup is just strong, but I ended up adding more coffee and it balanced out nicely. I also used half half-and-half and half skim milk to cut out a couple of calories but still keep some richness. I'll definitely make this again! (Might have to make another cup tonight, actually!) Thanks! :)

This was absolutely fabulous!! I followed the recipe to a tee, but wasn't sure how much ground coffee to use for making the fresh brewed coffee. I ended up using 3 tablespoons of the coffee, (to make the 1 cup of coffee) and I thought it was the right amount. I found I ended up with 2 cups of the coffee, rather than the 2-1/4 cups, and poured it into an (18 ounce) cappuccino coffee mug. I much preferred leaving out the whipped cream, as I found it took away the maple flavor in the coffee. I loved the taste of the half-n-half and maple syrup while it was cooking in the saucepan. It tasted a lot like sweetened condensed milk. Thank you southern chef in louisianna for this wonderful tasting coffee recipe. It's a keeper!!

YUM! I used Starbucks Espresso blend coffee that I added some cinnamon to in the brew basket, used fat free half & half, didn't use whipped cream and added an extra 1/4 cup coffee and the taste was perfect. I was addicted to Starbucks Maple Macchiatos until they stopped carrying them - this is very similar to one. Perfect coffee for Fall! Will be making this often, thanks.
