Dalgona Coffee

Dalgona Coffee has taken off on social media and became very popular overnight. It’s the latest trend in Korea and now the world. With most of us being in lockdown, the very first part of our daily routine is to drink coffee. It was so unreal to see such an aesthetically pleasing photo of this popular coffee drink and found out that it was just made of 3 very simple ingredients that you’d probably have in your kitchen. Do you have instant coffee? Yep – you got them in stock! How about sugar? Of course, you do have that… and finally water??? No worries, there’s the tap for that.

Dalgona Coffee is a cold latte drink with whipped, velvety and smooth coffee foam on top. A perfect match of cold milk and bittersweet coffee foam is absolutely made in heaven. The best part of it is that, you don’t need fancy equipment to make it at home. At this strange time, that many of us are being quarantined, you’d probably craving for barista made coffee. Have no fear, as this Dalgona coffee is so easy to make. No barista certificate needed. Just a few ingredients and some strong arm muscles.

Coffee Cake Cookies

I’m proud to say that these Coffee Cake Cookies were made by my daughter, Klarion. Yay! She likes baking too like her Mom and I’m happy!

These cookies are soft and a little bit crunchy in the edges. My daughter said they’re like cupcakes. It’s true, it’s like cupcakes left in the oven for longer than it should be. You can have these cookies for morning or afternoon tea or I guess anytime of the day.

What would you like to have cookies with, coffee or tea?

1 cup unsalted butter, slightly softened
1 1⁄4 cups sugar

Then add the flour and mix on high until well blened, about 1 to 2 minutes, scraping the sides of the bowl. Drop by the teaspoonful 1 1/2 to 2 inches apart onto a greased cookie sheet.
