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?
