This is a Dutch type of custard called hopjesvla. You can use instant coffee or strong brewed coffee depending on how much you like the coffee taste.
This was a little too sweet however had a lovely flavour and was thick & creamy. Next time I would reduce the sugar to a quarter cup as caramelizing the sugar intensifies the flavour. The sugar really did get stiff when the milk mixture was added but melted down again as the recipe stated. Would like to try this with chocolate as a flavouring rather than coffee. - 29 Sep 2008
Very easy to make, and a nice sweet taste. I made this for some caffiene addicts and they enjoyed it very much! I brewed the coffee very strong. Thanks for sharing this! - 03 Dec 2011
Easy to make and delicious. Use strong coffee for best taste. Hint: Don't use a plastic spoon to stir it. I ended up with melted plastic bits in my first batch. - 29 Sep 2008
