Coffee Recipes - Coffee Creme Brulee Recipe from the Food Network

As if Creme Brulee couldn't get any better...this recipe from the Food Network combines our love of delicious coffee with the rich, custardy, sugary crusted goodness of Creme Brulee. Enjoy this one. (How could you NOT??)

Coffee Creme Brulee Recipe courtesy Bob Blumer
Show: The Surreal Gourmet
Episode: Teaching an Old Bag New Tricks

4 egg yolks
1 cup sugar, divided
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 tablespoon instant coffee
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
In a medium-size bowl, beat egg yolks and 6 tablespoons sugar with a whisk for approximately 1 minute, or until smooth. Reserve.

In a second medium-size bowl, add coffee and 1/4 cup creme. Whisk thoroughly until smooth, then add remaining creme and whisk until well blended. Add coffee creme mixture and vanilla to egg yolks. Use a rubber spatula to gently fold together.

Use a ladle to pour mixture into individual ramekins, 3/4 of the way to the

Place ramekins into a roasting pan. Transfer to oven. Before closing oven
door, pour water into pan (but not into the ramekins themselves!) until it
reaches 1/2 way up the side of the ramekins.

Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until when you shake the pan, the brulee giggles slightly. Remove from oven and leave out on counter, allowing the residual heat of the water to finish the cooking process.

When brulees have fully solidified and cooled down, sprinkle 1 1/2
tablespoons of sugar evenly overtop each individual portion. Under a watchful eye, use a small blowtorch to caramelize the sugar.
Alternatively, place ramekins 1-inch below oven broiler until sugar caramelizes.

An Unusual Coffee Recipe - Coffee Pepper Steak Recipe

Pepper Coffee Steak Recipe
Here's a very unusual recipe using coffee that Jeannie V. submitted to me. As noted below, it doesn't take on a strong coffee flavor, it's just a great marinade. Enjoy!

Ground coffee is used as a spice and the result is tasty, but doesn't taste at all like a coffee drink. This marinade works well with both meat and fish.


Coarse ground dark roast coffee beans (French Roast or Espresso)
Coarse ground black pepper

Mix about 1/3 coffee beans and 2/3 pepper (ratios, not cups -- use 1 part ground coffee beans to 2 parts ground peppercorns.)


Coat steaks with olive oil and Worcestershire sauce
Season with garlic powder
Coat steaks with heavy layer of coffee/pepper mixture.
Let sit for 30 minutes to 2 hours
Sear on a very hot grill and cook to your favorite doneness

This coffee/pepper mixture works well with grilled salmon or tuna replacing Worcestershire with lemon juice and garlic powder with dill.

Coffee Pudding Recipe - Coffee Dessert Recipes

~Submitted by Jeannie~

At last, a coffee pudding recipe! I'm a huge pudding lover, and so I'll be giving this one a try and leaving a review of it. If you guys try it before me, please leave a comment with how this pudding turned out for you. With the addition of a little cocoa, I guess it's more appropriately called a Mocha Pudding. Enjoy, everyone!

Left over coffee
Same amount milk
1 1/2 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tbsp. cocoa
2-3 tbsp. sugar

Take drop of milk and mix with dry ingredients. Heat the balance of the milk with the coffee until boiling. Add the mixture of milk and dry ingredients until bubbles come up.

Gourmet Coffee Recipes - Greek Iced Coffee Recipe

Greek Iced Coffee
Thanks to Jeannie for sending in this Coffee Creation Recipe...

1 tablespoon instant coffee
3/4 cup of cold water
sugar to taste
milk to taste
crushed iced (to your liking)
a cocktail shaker

Take the one tablespoon of coffee and put it into the cocktail
shaker. If you like sweet coffee you can put your desired amount
of sugar also. Add a little bit of water to dilute the coffee and
sugar in order to make a small paste and dissolve the two ingredients
very well. Add water and desired amount of crushed ice. Add some
milk if you desire, Shake vigorously until the coffee comes out of
the cocktail shaker all thick. The crushed ice helps the mixture
become thick and creamy. Strain into tall glass and serve. Milk
can be substituted for all or some of the water if one desires,
but this is not the authentic way. This works equally well with
European imitation coffee that one can get in a health food store.
