Remembering 9~11 Coffee Ice Cream

NINE-ELEVEN.  It was just before 6am. I had just dragged myself out of bed and was engaging in my morning ritual of a cappuccino + Katie Couric. As I flipped the TV on, staring in a daze, unable to grasp what I was seeing. I can't remember how long I sat there, I just remember I was late for work.

9-11 Remembrance –

Marla of Family Fresh Cooking asked fellow bakers to join her in baking a remembrance cake to remember all those who lost their lives on 9-11-. While my post is neither a cake, nor is it baked, its flavor hearkens back to that morning in front of my television set.

Three tablespoons of espresso powder give this ice cream its kick. Along with the standard cream, milk and egg yolks - it makes for a wonderful after-dinner dessert. Skip the mints - and serve this, along with a sprinkling of chopped chocolate-covered espresso beans.

To get this deliciously-caffeinated recipe, visit BAKED SUNDAY MORNINGS and see all the other coffee ice creams.

A heartfelt wish of hope and remembrance for those friends, family or loved ones whose lives changed on that day.
