When living in Britian I used Camp Coffee (it's a Scottish liquid with a lovely unique flavor) in my Sticky Toffee Pudding cake recipe. I can't buy it here in the USA. Anyone out there know what a good substitute would be?

i would use an instant coffee powder, just make it up into a thin paste like camp. Camp is a chicory coffee liquid used for making a cup of coffee.

Yes, thanks for this. It IS a chickory flavor - not really coffee, but I think you're right that may be the closest. All of a sudden I'm thinking of a coffee called Chock Full 'o Nuts. Wonder if that is available anymore...?

Thanks again.

I found this site that sells pure ground chicory. Would this help? They also have coffe and chicory.

Well now that is fun! Thanks Cakedujour. I think, on reflection, that chickory really is the salient flavor, so I'm definitely going to focus on that. Or, I could just pop over to Scotland... ;)

Thanks arctic cat. I did a bit of an Internet search a while ago and couldn't find it. I do have a British Pantry grocery near me... I know it sounds dumb, but I actually didn't get myself in there to look. Will report back.

Anyone care to elaborate on exactly what flavor "chicory" is?

I have never had it before and am just curious and intrigued.

I'd say it is a lot like coffee but with a a grain taste like wheagy sort of. It's nice.

I had chicory coffee in Brennan's restaurant in New Orleans back in the late 70's. If you do the math you'll realize that I am way too old to remember what exactly the taste is, hahaha. Rats. It isn't funny, sigh. Oh well, will you buy "not old but experienced in years"?
