This recipe is pretty close to the one served up at The Cabin Restaurant about 50 miles west of New Orleans. It goes especially well with that special blend of chicory and coffee from the Cafe Du Monde, which can be purchased in gourmet food stores or online.

1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
