Print Recipe


  • 1 packet plain unflavored gelatin (1 packet is 1/4 oz.)
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1/2 cup condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup sweetened black coffee


  • Dissolve plain gelatin in hot water. Let it cool down.
  • Meanwhile, prepare black coffee and sweeten it to your liking. (I use brown sugar). Set the coffee aside.
  • Mix condensed and whole milk together.
  • Add half of the gelatin to the coffee and the other half to the milk mixture and stir it in nicely .
  • Add 1/4 cup of the milk mixture to the bottom of each dessert cup or ramekin and place them in the refrigerator. Keep the rest of the coffee and milk at room temperature.
  • In about an hour or so, the milk in the refrigerator will start to set. (The time depends on the quality of the gelatin). When it has set, add 1/4 cup of the coffee gelatin mix to the tops of the cups/ramekins and put them back into the refrigerator. Repeat the same steps to create two more layers of each.
  • Garnish with whipped cream or pour some condensed milk on top.
