Restaurants are such a fantastic source for recipe ideas! Always keep a look out. Last night I was out with my husband at a new cafe – I ordered what I always do, a cappuccino – but this one had – a subtle taste of vanilla that I went crazy for… so I came home to play and the results were equally delicious.
I wasn’t sure if they used a syrup or flavoured coffee, but I figured the easiest way to recreate it, would be to flavour the milk with a vanilla pod over a gentle heat. I threw in a cinnamon stick too, but to be honest, next time I’ll leave it out. I think vanilla makes for a good solo act. But, you can play with other flavouring ideas. What do you think? Give this a try, it’s simple, natural and something different to the usual cup.
