SWEET AND DARK COFFEE SYRUP IS COMPLEX IN IT’S SIMPLICITY

Deeply flavorful Sweet and Dark Coffee Syrup is thick and just perfect for adding to beverages and desserts like Tiramisu!  I add a little coffee liqueur too, but it’s completely optional.

This is really just a simple syrup that starts with a batch of very strong coffee instead of water.  After 15 minutes or so ofturkish coffee with beans simmering, it’s cooked down to a luscious, thick mixture that darkly sweet and rich.

I like to make a pot of ultra-strong Turkish coffee that steeps for a few minutes before decanting.  If your coffee isn’t strong enough, your coffee syrup won’t really taste like much at all.

It won’t have that deep, rich coffee flavor you want for your recipes, especially my Frozen Coffee Banana Torte. 

 

FROZEN COFFEE BANANA TORTE

For this Father’s Day I wanted to create a fabulous showpiece dessert featuring my hubby’s favorite fruit, bananas.

But since bananas are available all year long, this dessert can adorn your holiday or party table any season of the year.  It’s a festive recipe that’s certainly fit for any and all special occasions.

Frozen Coffee Banana Torte is a riff on the classic Tiramisu, except that it’s frozen and doesn’t use lady fingers.  This fabulous version of Sweet and Dark Coffee Syrup is generously brushed on slices of purchased pound cake to be layered with coffee ice cream, banana slices, and a White Chocolate Dalmatian Mousse.

Then I couldn’t resist  “gilding the lily” by adding a fabulous  Glossy Mocha Glaze!
