Fall is cafe season, but during a pandemic, you may not be inclined to sip and sit for long – if at all. Here are 5 amazing recipes that bring the cafe home.
French Cafe au Lait Recipe
In France, equal parts strong coffee and steamed milk combine to create Café au Lait. In Spain, the same beverage is called Cafe con Leche. Whatever you call your coffee with milk, it is always equal parts warm and cozy. This recipe makes a single serving, so adjust proportions appropriately. To make your treat even more irresistible, serve it with a fresh and flaky croissant, a piece of dark chocolate, or this extraordinary café au lait creme brulee.
