What Is Dalgona Coffee?

Dalgona Coffee, sometimes referred to as Whipped Coffee or Desi Cappuccino, is a concoction of instant coffee, sugar, and hot water that is whipped into a creamy consistency and then mixed into either hot or cold milk. The word “Dalgona” is derived from a Korean word that means “it’s sweet” and was inspired by a Korean honeycomb toffee snack. 

What Is Dalgona Coffee Cake?

  • Chocolate cake with whipped coffee icing on top, inspired by the well-known Dalgona coffee drink, is called Dalgona Coffee Cake. The salient characteristics are as follows:


  • Simple ingredients for the cake are flour, sugar, oil, water, vanilla, and cocoa powder. It is a luscious chocolate cake.


  • To make the frosting, whisk together sugar, water, and instant coffee until it becomes light and frothy, like meringue. This produces whipped cream with a coffee flavour.


  • To stabilise and spread the whipped coffee frosting, additional ingredients like as cream cheese or mascarpone are used. 


  • Before the chocolate cake is filled and topped with the dalgona coffee whipped cream, it is cut in half horizontally and brushed with simple syrup.


  • Chill the decorated cake until it solidifies. You can use chocolate shavings or broken pieces of cake to adorn it.

  • The outcome is a chocolate cake that is moist and tastes like a mocha treat, topped with a light and airy frosting flavoured with coffee. 

How To Make Dalgona Coffee

Making Dalgona coffee is simple. Boiling water, granulated sugar, and instant coffee granules are combined in equal amounts.


Beat for many minutes until smooth, glossy peaks of coffee froth develop.


Coffee can be whipped by hand or with a mixer.


Because there aren’t nearly enough ingredients or volume for a stand mixer to get in there and whisk the coffee, a hand mixer works best.


My suggestion is to begin whisking the Dalgona coffee by hand and finish with a mixer once the mixture has reached a higher volume.


If you don’t have a mixer, you can whisk everything by hand completely. It takes approximately 3-4 minutes to get the gorgeous, smooth texture of Dalgona coffee, so it’s a terrific arm workout.

It’s quite simple to make this recipe for chocolate coffee cake. And really, is there anything better than a recipe for Dalgona chocolate? I made these Halloween Spider Cupcakes and Sour Cream Fudge Chocolate Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting using my go-to chocolate cake recipe.


The finest chocolate cake is this one. It has every ideal chocolate cake characteristic—it’s fudgy, moist, and just amazing. Two 8-inch cake pans should be baked and then cooled. Next, whisk the Dalgona coffee and combine it with the whipped mascarpone cream. You’re done when you fill and frost your chocolate cakes.


I am not a cake decorator at all. If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve undoubtedly read my assertion about this numerous times. I prefer to fill and frost things as easily as I can. The frosting used for the cake’s top and filling is the same for this Dalgona coffee chocolate cake.


You can make a really good chocolate cake by adding a few chocolate shavings, which is how I decorate cakes.

Tips For Making Dalgona Coffee Chocolate Cake

I suggest using a stand mixer or hand mixer after first mixing the ingredients by hand to produce the Dalgona coffee. This will enable the mixer to continue whipping by creating some volume. There wasn’t enough volume in the bowl for the whisk to properly whisk everything together when I tried to whisk it right away with the stand mixer. It will take approximately a minute to stir the ingredients together by hand before using the mixer.


When the Dalgona coffee is velvety smooth and stiff peaks develop, you will know it’s finished. This indicates that the peaks retain their shape when you lift the whisk out of the whipped coffee. If the peaks collapse, whisk for an additional minute or two. 


Before filling, stacking, and frosting the cake layers, I suggest levelling them. This entails cutting off the cake’s circular or domed top. Use a cake leveller or a serrated knife to accomplish this. To remove the domed top and create a level surface, hold it parallel to your countertop and saw across the top of the cake. It’s not flawless, so don’t worry. There’s no need to stress over this cake.
