Today is National Cafe Au Lait Day!

Wednesday, February 17, 2010 Posted by Rita A

Today is National Cafe Au lait Day! Cafe au lait is French for "coffee with milk". It is made with a 1:1 or 1:2 ratio of dark roast brewed coffee to heated milk or half-n-half. Add sugar to taste!

Steamed milk and hot coffee blend to make the perfect mellow beverage.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
•1 part hot coffee
•1 part steamed milk
Mix and serve hot.

Makes 1 serving.

I am on my 4th Cafe Au Lait today. Good thing I drink decaf.

Here is a recipe I found for a Cafe Au Lait Cheesecake from Dragon's Kitchen. It looks so decadent. Take a look for yourself. Careful, don't drool on the keys.

Enjoy your day!

    Oh darn, I had a cafe mocha that I made on my Keurig machine. Wish I had known before hand!

    Many people call my boys' skin color cafe au lait! So I guess we have to join in the celebration.

    My coffee consumption unfortunatley has been cut way back while I'm healing a stomach ulcer :(

    (I just realized that makes me sound like an old person but I'm only 43)

    Can't wait until that's over to try the drink.

    We learned to order this in Vietnam (which has a lot of French influence) - otherwise, you got something resembling a thick, dark sludge. :)
