Coffee Jelly

  • Author: Funky Asian Kitchen
  • Prep Time: 3 minutes
  • Cook Time: 5 minutes (plus chill time)
  • Total Time: 8 minutes
  • Yield: serves 4 1x
  • Category: sweets
  • Cuisine: Japanese

Ingredients

Scale
  • 8 grams gelatin powder (1 packet Knox gelatin)
  • 3 tablespoons vietnamese coffee and 2 cups boiling water (I use Cafe Du Monde chicory and coffee in the yellow can)
  • 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 can condensed milk

Instructions

  1. Put the gelatin powder in a bowl and mix with 2 tablespoons of cold water. Set aside.
  2. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a small pot and turn off the heat. Add the coffee to the pot and steep for 5 minutes. Strain through a coffee/tea filter.
  3. Rinse the pot, pour the coffee back in, and put it back on the stove. Add the sugar and bring the coffee to a simmer over high heat. As soon as it starts to bubble, turn off the heat and add the gelatin. 
  4. Mix the gelatin into the coffee with a whisk or spoon for a couple minutes until the gelatin has fully dissolved.
  5. Let the mixture cool for 10 minutes. 
  6. Pour the mixture into 4 small cups, cover with a lid or plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours, or until the jelly has set.
  7. Serve coffee jelly with the condensed milk on the side.
