Have you tried the Dalgona Coffee recipe that has been trending online?

What is Dalgona Coffee? It is creamy coffee mixture  that is actually whipped to get that texture. Dalgona Coffee originates from South Korea, and it has made waves on social media recently. With more time spent at home due to the Covid-19 situation, many people are trying their hand at the recipe. 

After seeing so many posts on Dalgona Coffee, I was inspired to make a Dalgona Coffee Chiffon Cake. I baked a Coffee Chiffon Cake and decorated it with Dalgona Coffee cream.

I tweaked the ratio for the Dalgona Coffee Cream - instead of the usual 1:1:1 portion of instant coffee, sugar, and hot water, I increased the amount of sugar as the coffee is a bit too strong as a cream when it is not taken with milk, which is how Dalgona Coffee is usually served. 

As the cream will only stay creamy for an hour or so, it is recommended to eat the cake immediately after you decorate with the Dalgona Coffee cream. If you are intending on keeping the cake overnight, the 1:1:1 ratio works as it seeps into the cake and thus is no longer too bitter.
