Yes, I successfully transformed the well-known Dalgona coffee drink into icing! As a connoisseur of coffee, I thought I could come up with anything when I made this delicious cold brew mocha and iced coffee with vanilla cream. I think I’ve finally created a frosting that tastes just like your favourite Dalgona milk drink, Dalgona coffee cake half kg price, even though it took some trial and error to get it to set atop a cupcake or sheet cake. 

The basic recipe, which consists of equal portions (2 tablespoons) of instant coffee, water, and sugar, surprised me with how strong it is. When I first tried it, I believed that the intense flavour of the whipped coffee could not be subdued. I attempted to add butter, but it turned into a gooey, divided mess. I also tried adding powdered sugar, but it simply made it too sugary, almost unpalatable. Cream cheese was the magic ingredient that made all the difference for me!

What is Dalgona Coffee Cakes

Dalgona Coffee Cakes are delightful desserts inspired by the popular Dalgona coffee trend. These cakes usually have a filling of smooth coffee cream, a topping of fluffy, sweet Dalgona coffee froth, and deeply flavoured, springy, light chocolate coffee sponges. India and Pakistan gave rise to the Dalgona coffee craze, which spread to Korea and the internet in 2020. 

Dalgona coffee is made by whisking equal parts water, instant coffee, and sugar together to produce a velvety foam. Afterwards, the Dalgona Coffee Cakes are frosted with this foam, giving the entire cake a strong coffee flavour. For those who enjoy coffee, the cakes are a rich and satisfying delicacy that is simple to prepare.

India’s food potential is ginormous and yet untapped

India has much more to offer in terms of food than just phaeti hui coffee. For us, the Chai Tea Latte fad is abhorrent. It’s like referring to naan as “naan bread,” and that’s unacceptable. It feels as redundant and inappropriate to me as “dal soup”—hot and strange.

As I emerge from this terrifying thought, I see that #DalgonaCake is the newest hot hashtag on Instagram. Not only is the coffee-sugar mixture seen in large quantities over cooled milk, but it’s also layered in cakes, used as icing, and spread over biscuit bases.

Thanks to the extra time during the coronavirus lockdown, this is what the internet has been up to. This is the maximum amount of indulgence or is there a silver lining?

How To Make Dalgona Coffee Cake

The craze of Dalgona Coffee has been running strong for several months. I tried it and it was really good. The instant coffee powder and granulated sugar mixture transformed into a fluffy, airy frosting-like consistency when I whisked it. Then it occurred to me to attempt baking a chocolate coffee cake devoid of butter and eggs and to decorate it with the enchanted Dalgona coffee frosting. You may now proceed.

Step 1: Ingredients

  • All-purpose flour – 11/2 cup
  • Granulated Sugar – 1 cup
  • Cocoa powder – 1/4 cup
  • Cooking Oil – 1/4 cup
  • Baking soda – 1 tsp
  • water – 1 cup
  • Vanilla Extract – 1 tsp
  • Instant coffee – 1 tsp
  • Lemon juice / Vinegar – 1 tbsp
  • Chocolate chip – grated (optional)

For Sugar Syrup:

  • Sugar – 2 tbsp
  • Water – 2 tbsp

Dalgona Whipped Cream:

  • Instant Coffee Powder – 2 tbsp (can increase the quantity for intense coffee flavour)
  • Granulated Sugar – 1 Cup
  •  Hot water – 1/3 Cup

Step 2: Making the Cake 

1. Grease two 6-inch baking pans (I used two), preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and set them aside.

2. Combine the all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, granulated sugar, baking soda, and instant coffee powder in a mixing dish and thoroughly stir everything together. To improve aeration, move everything.

3. Combine the water, cooking oil, lemon juice, and vanilla essence in a separate basin and well stir.

4. Mix thoroughly after progressively incorporating the wet elements into the dry ingredients.

5. Fill the pans with cake batter, and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.

6. After removing the cake from the pans, let it cool fully before frosting it with Dalgona Coffee Cream.

Step 3: Dalgona Whipped Cream 

1. Combine the sugar, instant coffee powder, and hot water in a mixing dish and well mix.

2. After that, whip the ingredients with a hand mixer or electric mixer until it turns into a fluffy, creamy frosting. It should only take a few minutes.

Basic Syrup:

1. Combine equal parts water and sugar in a pan.

2. Boil it until the sugar is dissolved.

3. Let the syrup cool down.

Step 4: Assemble the Cake

1. After the cake has fully cooled. Slice off and level the cake’s dome.

2. Next, cover the cake with a layer of light dalgona coffee cream after brushing it with simple syrup.

3. After that, put the second cake on top, drizzle it with more simple syrup, and then cover it with Dalgona coffee cream.

4. Use the Dalgona Coffee Cream to fully frost the cake.

5. Using what chocolate chips I had, grate or pulse them, then sprinkle them over the cake and top with additional chocolate chips.
