Coffee Pudding | Your Magic Mug

This old old old pudding recipe was transmitted to a friend by his great-grandmother. To give an idea of how old this recipe is, it was translated from her German script found in an old ledger when she'd collected favorite recipes from her friends. It's a bona fide and delicious "antique". The only modern touch that we've added to it is the option of using decaffeinated coffee... but if you are a REAL, there is no need! 

Let's get to the point and here's the secret recipe! But Shhhttt! Don't share it with no one! Yummy!

What you need

    1/4 cup sugar
    4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    Pinch salt
    2 cups cold strong coffee
    2 large egg yolks, lightly beaten
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped until stiff
    Additional whipped cream, optional
    Shaved bittersweet chocolate, optional

    In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, flour and salt. Stir in coffee until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat to low; cook and stir 2 minutes longer.

    Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot filling into egg yolks; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Stir in vanilla. Cool. Fold in whipping cream. Chill. Garnish with additional whipped cream and chocolate if desired.
