I was really craving coffee with ice cream, but not coffee ice cream or a cup of coffee with ice cream on the side. What I wanted was sweet coffee sauce poured over my vanilla ice cream. I tried out a few recipes that called for all kinds of wonderful ingredients like cream and vanilla, which ended up just taking away the sweet coffee flavor I was looking for. Then I just decided to strip it down to the two flavors I was aiming for and see what happened. Deliciousness, that’s what. No need for all the fuss, just keep things simple.
1 cup of strong coffee.
2/3 cup of sugar
Pour the coffee and syrup in a small saucepan and heat until gentle boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until sauce thickens and reduces. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Pour over vanilla ice cream and serve.
