Old Fashioned Coffee Pudding

While visiting a blog that I like to peruse, I found this recipe. I am forever making too much coffee for us and we use it most of the time for iced coffee, but would really like something else for a change. Last week, I made this recipe and it was a hit... for those of us who enjoy the coffee flavor. My younger children insisted that I stick with chocolate or vanilla for them. 

Old Fashioned Coffee Pudding
    1/4 cup sugar
  4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  Pinch salt
   2 cups cold strong coffee
  2 egg yolks, lightly beaten
  1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, whipped until stiff
 Additional whipped cream, optional
  Shaved bittersweet chocolate, optional
In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, flour and salt. Stir in coffee until smooth. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until thickened and bubbly. Reduce heat to low; cook and stir 2 minutes longer.
Remove from the heat. Stir a small amount of hot filling into egg yolks; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Stir in vanilla. Cool. Fold in whipping cream. Chill. Garnish with additional whipped cream and chocolate if desired. Yield: 4 servings
