Blogvent Day 9: Gingerbread Latte
I'm new to the Starbucks gingerbread latte love - I only discovered it this year, so it appears I have been missing out! After having one and becoming hooked, I decided to have a look online to see if there were any recipes out there. And there were!
The original recipe I used is available here. The quantities aren't very exact so you'd probably need to tweak it to your taste. The first go I had contained waaaay too much ginger and was a bit of a throat burner, but when I tried it today with a little less ginger and added some vanilla extract it was lovely, so the quantities I used today are below.
Big dollop of golden syrup (i.e. a generous tablespoon)
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Put some milk in a pan (however much you like for 2 coffees) along with the golden syrup, vanilla extract and ginger and heat until steaming.
2. Make 2 cups of coffee (about half fill the cups).
3. Add the milk to the coffees, and top with whipped cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon.
Enjoy! Also, I am now on Twitter (@cakesfromkim) so please say hello if you are on there too!
