I was always turned off by the idea of using instant coffee. I have tried to make coffee ice cream with real coffee and it is a pain in the ass. Then I finally gave in and used instant and I have to admit, it was pretty good.
I also have made this creamy coffee syrup for chocolate muffins or ice cream by cooking vanilla ice cream with instant espresso. Turns out great.
