Substitute for Coffee in Chocolate Pots de Creme recipes

luciaannek | Dec 12, 2012 05:54 PM

Hey All,
I really want to try The Pioneer Woman's Pots du Creme Recipe (http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/20...); it looks easy and tasty. However, it calls for a cup of coffee per 12 servings and I am allergic to caffeine.

It seems like the main purpose of the coffee is the melt the chocolate and heat the eggs. Could I replace it with boiling milk or something else? What would be good here both in terms of its purpose and its flavor?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
