  • 3 cups [7 dl] of evaporated milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup [55 g] of sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 cup [2.4 dl] of hot strong coffee , freshly brewed
  • A pinch of freshly-grated nutmeg


  • Heating milk: Heat milk, making sure it does not break the boil.
  • Mixing eggs and milk: Mix eggs, sugar and salt. Whisk until it is thoroughly mixed. Add the milk, starting with small quantities and mixing thoroughly before adding more milk. Stir in coffee.
  • Heating eggnog: Return the eggnog to the pot and heat over medium-low heat, stirring until it starts to become foamy and a bit thicker (about 5 mins).
  • Cooling and serving: Remove the eggnog from the heat and whisk until it becomes a bit cooler (so it doesn't form a crust). Sprinkle with nutmeg. Serve immediately.



If you want to make the chocolate version, substitute 1/4 cup of unsweetened powdered cocoa dissolved in an extra cup of hot evaporated milk for the cup of coffee.
