    Cape Coffee for dessert

    On a cold winter’s night, particularly after a big comforting meal, I much prefer a nice hot toddy to a dessert and one of my favourite after-dinner drinks is Cape Coffee.

    To make two cups of Cape Coffee you will need:

  • 500ml strong black coffee
    2 Mugs, preferably pre-heated
    1 stick of cinnamon
    5 cloves
    The rind of ½ orange and the rind of ½ lemon, sliced into thin strips
    20 ml sugar
    130ml brandy
    ½ cup lightly whipped cream Mix the cloves, rind, sugar, brandy and cinnamon and set aside for about two hours.

  • Prepare the coffee and keep warm.
    Heat the sugar and brandy mix over low heat, then ignite.
    Once the flame dies down strain into mugs, add the coffee and the whipped cream.
