This is an old Cajun recipe. The idea is to sip the coffee mixture through the
cream, much like Irish coffee. Some Cajuns like to mix a tablespoon of rum in with
the coffee and molasses.
- 3 cups strong black coffee
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 1 cup cream, whipped
- Dash of nutmeg
- Rum (optional)
- Mix coffee and molasses and heat to a low simmer. Stir to blend.
- Divide mixture between 4 cups or heat-proof glasses.
- Top with cream and a dash of nutmeg.
