Coffee Jelly – Dr Oetker Vegegel

Dr. Oetker make Vege-Gel which contains carageenan and locust bean gum as gelling agents.  It cost me £1.59 for a 25g pack which contains 4 sachets from Sainsbury’s.

Coffee Jelly (Serves 4)

500 ml strong black coffee
1 sachet of Vege-gel
Whipped cream and a sprinkling of cocoa powder to decorate

  1. Make sure your 500mlo black coffee is cool. When the liquid is at room temperature, pour into a small pan.   Sprinkle over 1 sachet of Vege-gel and stir thoroughly, making sure the Vege-gel is dissolved.  Turn the heat on under the pan and bring the liquid to the boil, stirring occasionally.
  2. Pour the mixture into 4 glasses or cups and leave to set for about 1 hour.  (This jelly doesn’t need to go into the fridge to solidify). 
  3. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkling of cocoa powder.

This produces a nice jelly texture that isn’t too firm.
