|Café au Lait|
Literally "coffee with milk", café au lait is a drink made of coffee and scalded milk in a ratio of 1:1. It is the staple coffee drink of French Louisiana and is often served in bowls in Acadiana.
Ingredients[edit | edit source]
Procedure[edit | edit source]
- If you are using coffee concentrate, add enough hot water to make 4 cups of coffee.
- At the same time, heat the milk over a low to medium heat until scalded.
- Pour equal amounts of coffee and scalded milk into bowls or cups.
Notes, tips, and variations[edit | edit source]
- Steamed milk can be substituted for scalded milk.
- The milk can be heated in the cups by half filling each cup with milk and microwaving briefly. A 1,000W microwave oven will heat one half-cup of milk in 50 seconds, two in 60 seconds.
