Dalgona coffee

The Korean coffee drink taking the internet by storm, dalgona coffee is like a cappucino turned on its head, with the frothy coffee on top and the milk underneath. It only requires three ingredients to make and you can have it hot or cold. The hardest part is getting your picture just right!

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp instant coffee or espresso powder
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp very hot water
  • 400ml/14fl oz milk

Method

  1. Add the instant coffee, sugar and hot water to a medium mixing bowl. Using an electric hand-held mixer, whip the coffee mixture until it is light brown, fluffy and holds stiff peaks when the whisk is removed.

  2. Heat the milk, if desired, and divide between two heatproof glasses. Spoon dollops of the frothed coffee mixture on top and smooth out with a spoon. Serve.

Recipe Tips

For a Friday afternoon dalonga, beat in 1-2 tsp of coffee liqueur into the coffee mixture.
