1 box (1 ounce) unflavored gelatin

4 cups water

2 tablespoons instant coffee

1 can (12.8 ounces) table cream


In a sauce pot, bring 3 cups of the water to a boil. Add instant coffee and sugar. Stir until dissolved.

In a large bowl, sprinkle the gelatin on the remaining 1 cup of cold water. Let stand for about 1 minute or until gelatin powder begins to bloom.

Gradually add the 3 cups of boiling coffee and stir constantly for about 2 to 3 minutes or until gelatin is completely dissolved and no granules are visible.

Transfer mixture into a baking dish and allow to completely cool. Refrigerate for about 2 to 3 hours or until completely set.

In a bowl, combine condensed milk and table cream. Stir until blended.

Cut set gelatin into 1-inch cubes and divide into serving cups. Top with sweetened cream. Garnish with whipped cream, if desired. Serve cold.
