Eggless Dalgona Coffee Cupcakes / Dalgona Coffee Muffins

The word "Dalgona" is derived from Korean word "Dalguna" which means "it's sweet". We are all aware of the Dalgona Coffee frenzy which took internet by storm in year 2020. The trend started from Dalgona candy which resembles honeycomb toffee and is made by mixing melted sugar and baking soda🍯.

Dalgona Coffee is made by whipping equal portions of instant coffee, water and sugar till it becomes light & creamy. This whipped coffee is then added over hot or cold milk. Before even the term Dalgona was known, this whipped coffee was one of the common beverages made in Indian homes & known as "Pheeti hui coffee" 👻. With the Facebook & Instagram flooding with Dalgona coffee pics, all I could imagine was every mom's eye rolling face👀  behind the scene😂.

Inspired by this Dalgona trend, I experimented little bit and have created my recipe of Dalgona cupcakes or muffins. Just like in dalgona coffee where bottom layer is of milk and top layer is golden brown whipped coffee, these delicious muffins combine the flavour of vanilla and coffee in every bite. The texture of these muffins comes out perfectly soft & spongy. For coffee lovers this is not only visual treat but treat for their taste buds too.
This Dalgona Muffin recipe is eggless and can be easily made with few commonly available kitchen ingredients. It is a perfect bakery item that can be added in your high tea menu or served as breakfast muffins. These melt-in-mouth muffins combine the heavenly flavours of vanilla & coffee and people from every age group just love them. You can increase the quantity of coffee as per your taste. My husband is a big time coffee lover and whenever I make these for him, I add just a little more coffee for that extra kick👍.

List of Ingredients: (Makes 6-8 muffins)

  • All Purpose Flour (Maida)-1 cup
  • Baking Powder- 1 tsp
  • Baking Soda-1/4 tsp
  • Thick Curd (Yoghurt)-1/4 cup
  • Powdered Sugar-1/2 cup
  • Milk-1/4 cup + 3 tbsp
  • Vanilla Extract-1 tsp
  • Oil-1/4 cup
  • Instant Coffee-1 & 1/2 tsp
  • Warm water-1 tsp

Steps To Prepare:

Sieve together all the dry ingredients-APF (Maida), Baking powder and baking soda. Keep these dry ingredients aside.
In a small bowl, add Instant coffee and warm water. Keep this mix aside.
In a mixing bowl add thick curd & powdered sugar. Whisk well till sugar is completely dissolved. Add 1/4 cup milk, oil and vanilla extract to it. Whisk once again till all the ingredients are mixed together.
 Whisk :
Set the oven for preheating at 170 degree Celsius. By the time oven is preheating let us proceed to next step.

Start mixing dry ingredients (from step1) into the wet ingredients bowl. We will add 3 tbsp milk gradually while folding the batter. 
Silicon Spatula :
In a muffin tray place the liners. Add half of the batter using a spoon in these liners. Fill the liners upto 2/3rd level and you need to leave some space for muffins to rise. If you are using little bigger liners then you will get 6 muffins & with smaller ones you will easily make 7-8 muffins.
Muffin Tray :
In the remaining batter add the coffee mix we prepared in step2. Fold once again. Add this coffee batter in muffin liners also. Tap the muffin tray once or twice to remove air bubbles.
Silicon Muffin Liner :
Bake these muffins at 170 degree celsius for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes check with a toothpick, it should come out clean else for 2-3 minutes more.

  1. Can we use paper cups as I don't have silicon moulds?

    1. You can use paper liner but close them in a box for a few hours before removing liner as paper liners do not come out so clear.
