Mm this is delicious. I cut the recipe in half, but found it a bit too sweet for me. Maybe my maple syrup is just strong, but I ended up adding more coffee and it balanced out nicely. I also used half half-and-half and half skim milk to cut out a couple of calories but still keep some richness. I'll definitely make this again! (Might have to make another cup tonight, actually!) Thanks! :)
This was absolutely fabulous!! I followed the recipe to a tee, but wasn't sure how much ground coffee to use for making the fresh brewed coffee. I ended up using 3 tablespoons of the coffee, (to make the 1 cup of coffee) and I thought it was the right amount. I found I ended up with 2 cups of the coffee, rather than the 2-1/4 cups, and poured it into an (18 ounce) cappuccino coffee mug. I much preferred leaving out the whipped cream, as I found it took away the maple flavor in the coffee. I loved the taste of the half-n-half and maple syrup while it was cooking in the saucepan. It tasted a lot like sweetened condensed milk. Thank you southern chef in louisianna for this wonderful tasting coffee recipe. It's a keeper!!
YUM! I used Starbucks Espresso blend coffee that I added some cinnamon to in the brew basket, used fat free half & half, didn't use whipped cream and added an extra 1/4 cup coffee and the taste was perfect. I was addicted to Starbucks Maple Macchiatos until they stopped carrying them - this is very similar to one. Perfect coffee for Fall! Will be making this often, thanks.
This was very yummy! I cut the recipe in half as I was the only one drinking it. Made for the 2009 Summer Comfort Cafe.
This was a lovely cup of coffee. I really enjoyed it. Nice and robust. I love the addition of maple syrup. Thanks for sharing.
Boy did this wake me up! I used evaporated milk for a healthier alternative instead of the half and half and next time I will cut down on the maple syrup a bit as it is very sweet.
I love this. I followed the directions exactly and it was absolutely delicious. Lovely for a morning treat.
WONDERFUL!! I also used fat-free half and half and sugar-free (made with Splenda) maple syrup. This was so good for breakfast this morning! Thanks!
This is a superb, unusual dessert coffee! The maple is a terrific change from the usual chocolate or cinnamon coffee drinks. I have to admit, I did make this with just 2% milk because I was dying to try it and didn't have any half-and-half on-hand, but it was still delicious (although, I think it would be more delectable with half-and-half). I like the sweet, subtle flavor and the fact that the coffee flavor still shines though, as opposed to some mocha or cinnamon coffee drinks that are overwhelmed by other flavors. Thanks for posting- I will definitely make this again when I get some half-and-half.
OH, so delicious, great dessert coffee. We even had it for breakfast. Made it just like the recipe said except, I used FAT-FREE half & half, it worked great. We really enjoyed it. Thank you Recipe Fairy.
