Iced Cappuccino Syllabub

It’s snowing! A thick blanket of snow is covering my car, my garden and my street. It’s so lovely to sit by the window, looking outside while curdled up next to the fireplace heater. Whenever I’m whipping up cream, or dusting a cake with confectioners’ sugar, I feel like I’m making snow. The thought of making my own snow is what prompted me to make these iced cappuccino syllabubs. Cappuccino. Cream. Crushed biscuits. Need I say more? Rating: 4- out of 5.


Iced Cappuccino Syllabub




Iced Cappuccino Syllabub: Created my own recipe

Ingredients: Serves 4
- 250 ml heavy cream
- 5 tablespoons coffee liqueur, like a White Russian
- ¼ cup confectioners' sugar
- ½ cup crushed biscuits, like macaroons
- 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules

Instructions:
- Put the heavy cream into a medium-sized bowl and whip the cream till soft but firm with an electric mixer on high speed. Add the confectioners' sugar and whip until combined. Add the coffee liqueur, whip again.
- To assemble the syllabub: put 1 tablespoon of crushed biscuits in a martini glass. Dollup the coffee cream on top, about 4 heaping tablespoons. Garnish with ¼ teaspoon of instant granules. Put in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Has the snow started to come down where you live?
Or are you the Luckiest Person in the World and is the sun still shining?

Tis indeed lovely to be sat indoors and watching the snow fall ... trying to go about your daily business is another matter though lol. Great looking syllabub ;0)
Enjoy the snow!

It is not just snowing, but also freezing cold here (4 F).
What a perfect treat to enjoy "inside".

Syllabub is a new treat to me! It sounds like something related to poetry hehe. It looks and sounds great. I'd like to see some snow, but we had a big storm dubbed as "snowmaggedon" last year so I'd like to avoid a repeat, too.

I'm not a fan of the snow but this looks like it would make any snowy day a better one.

I pray for snow every year but where I live it rarely comes. And for this Florida girl at heart I am still fascinated and excited by snow. This is some fabulous dessert! Cappuccino is a favorite flavor and I love the snowy, wintery look of it. Perfect!
