Perfect for a hot summer day and a bit of Japanese summer nostalgia is chilled coffee jelly with cream. People in Japan like this dessert in the summer. Made with kanten 寒天
Which is a transparent vegan gelatinous algae.
The recipe is super easy so why not try and make this your self by following the simple recipe.
This is what you will need
x3 0.27oz of strong filter coffee I used my coffee scoop if you have one it’s x3 of those . The coffee I used was number 5 strength. You can also use a cafetière if you don’t have a filter. I really wouldn’t use instant coffee.
2 cups of hot water
2 tablespoons of kanten
4 tablespoon of unrefined sugar
You will also need square container ( like a lunch box )
Filter your coffee using the two cup of hot water.
Add the coffee to a pan and add the sugar stir to dissolve.
Then sprinkle the kanten on top of the liquid and turn on the heat without stirring until it begins to boil . After the liquid comes to a boil turn down to a simmer and simmer for a few minutes stirring occasionally until the kanten has dissolved.
Pour the liquid into your mould, you can either make cubes by pouring into a container and turning out and cutting when set or pouring in to individual glass bowls.
Leave to cool and place in the fridge to set.
I served mine with almond cream.
