Homemade cappuccino

DSC_0335DSC_0343

This is Sarie’s new favorite thing to make: A homemade cappuccino

Per cup, you’ll need:

Coffee

A cup of warm milk (just to bubbling)

An egg yolk, preferably at room temperature

A couple of spoonfuls of sugar

Whip the sugar into the egg yolks until they start to turn a lighter color (this takes a while but it will happen eventually). Pour into the bottom of the cup. Cover with the warm milk and a dash of coffee.

Gnam! (“Yum!” In Italian,”gn” is pronounced like “ny.”) To be eaten with cake dipped in it, which naturally, makes delicious crumbs.
