Around this time last year, the dalgona coffee phenomenon started on TikTok. The whipped drink went through multiple iterations, and now, it’s evolved in yet another way. Have you heard about dalgona baked oats yet?
In case you missed the dalgona coffee craze, it’s a frothy, whipped coffee inspired by a South Korean toffee candy. To make it, you simply whip some sugar, instant coffee, and hot water together to create a froth, then plop it on top of milk or a dairy substitute.
Now, this same concept is being applied to a new food by Justine Snacks, the same TikTok influencer responsible for those bright purple blueberry cookies we posted about yesterday. She created her recipe in honor of the dalgona coffee anniversary, but instead of a new drink, she made a baked oats cake, as shown in the video below.
She combines the dry ingredients (oat flour, baking soda, and salt) in one bowl and the wet (almond butter, maple syrup, egg, vanilla extract, and espresso) in another. She then combines both in one bowl to make the batter.
Justine then pours the batter into three small ramekins and bakes them at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes. For the dalgona portion, she simply whips up the now-famous TikTok recipe and uses it as the cake’s “icing.”
