Dalgona Coffee And Vanilla Cupcakes (Vegan)

 Dalgona Coffee Vanilla Cupcakes have a delicious combination of coffee and vanilla. The cupcakes are moist and delish and make a great teatime treat. 

The Sun rises early in the hills. As it climbs up, the East part of the hill gets illuminated with its rays. Every tree wears gold and the Poplar tree becomes a giant chandelier as its leaves twist and twirl in the morning breeze. A great Barbet screams and dives down into the valley and disappears into the other side of the hill where the Sun has not yet reached and is dark, grey and cold.

Our morning walk comes to an end as we reach the outer periphery of our fields. A pair of Striated Laughing Thrush are huddled together on a branch of the pear tree.  The pair croons softly and sweetly.

Back home, daily chores begin. An energizing morning walk gives a good start to the day. In the second half, we made Dalgona coffee and vanilla cupcakes.

Dalgona coffee took the food world by storm last year. Our favourite beaten coffee got so much attention and popularity that every coffee lover made it hot or cold or used it in some avatar.

We used it in our favourite Eggless  Vanilla Cupcakes.

The cupcakes get a brown coffee top that goes very well with vanilla.

  2. Can this recipie used to make a cake rather than a cupcakes? Lazy me?
    Also can APF be replaced with WWF?

    1. Yes, you may bake it as a cake in one 8 inch round pan. If you replace apf with wwf, use more milk as whole wheat flour requires more water. Happy Baking!
