For a single serving of Dalgona coffee, follow these simple steps:
First, add two tablespoons of instant coffee, sugar and hot water, all in the same amount. (You should start with two tablespoons each and increase from there if necessary). Then beat the ingredients together in a bowl until it becomes thicker in consistency like a frothy cream. You need to use hot water for the coffee and sugar to dissolve better and faster. Beat until it turns light brown. Once the batter is ready, take a glass and pour in some cold milk, leaving a 2 inch gap for the frothy whipped cream to rest on the milk. Using a spoon, fill these 2 inches with the creamy layer. You can also sprinkle with cocoa powder to make it visually appealing. Serve it cold and enjoy the taste!
