I was going through a “gelatinise it!” phase a few weeks ago when I discovered a box of powdered gelatine in my pantry, and coffee was the first victim. I drizzled it with condensed milk and I met my new favourite dessert. It’s despicably easy and also just delicious.


  • 3 T cold water
  • 10 g gelatine powder
  • 2 cups hot black coffee
  • 100 g brown sugar
  • 1 x 397 g can condensed milk

1. Place the water in a bowl and add the gelatine. Allow the gelatine to bloom or absorb the water completely.
2. Whisk the hot coffee and sugar into the gelatine until dissolved. Pour into a clingfilm-lined baking sheet or silicone tray and chill for 2–3 hours, or until the jelly has completely set.
3. To serve, cut into cubes and place in a glass or bowl and drizzle with the condensed milk. Serve immediately.
