Dalgona Milk Pudding

Dalgona Milk Pudding

Dalgona Coffee has been something that has been viral for a couple of weeks now. It is a mixture of instant coffee powder, sugar and warm water that is blended well using a hand blender or whisk to form a fluff like coffee. 

Since it is available at almost every house, I wondered if it could be transformed to a tiramisu-like pudding. I have been planning to do this since the past 2-3 days. Finally I put my imagination to effect. Alhamdulilah it turned out so good. If you love coffee or loved the dalgona coffee experimence please do try this! 😍 

I made this with basic ingredients available at home, you may use cream cheese in the whipped cream-thick cream layer and substitute with whatever ingredients you have at home. As we all are going through this lock down phase, it is difficult to find ingredients. I made this with whatever I found in my pantry. 

After the Friday biryani session I always love to indulge in something sweet and this is one of the outcomes. This definitely is a cheat tiramisu dessert. So yumm and delicious. I have used Lady finger biscuits for my pudding, you may use any unflavored biscuits or even bread is doable. But if you are using biscuits like Marie, I would suggest to make the milk mixture lukewarm and pour over the Marie biscuits so that the biscuits are soaked well. For bread and lady finger biscuits cold milk mixture will do. Next is a layer of vanilla Flavored cream using whipped cream and thick cream, here you may add cream cheese if you have. And then again a layer of milk soaked biscuits. Finally spread or pipe the whipped coffee (dalgona) with some folded fresh cream (to dilute the bitterness) and top up with whatever your heart desires. 
This is definitely a quick fix tiramisu or like I love to call it - Cheat Tiramisu πŸ˜…

  • 2 tbsp warm water 
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 3-4 tbsp fresh cream/ thick cream
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence 
  • 1 cup Whipped cream
  • 200 ml Fresh cream/ thick cream/NestlΓ© cream
  • 3 tbsp Condensed milk
  • 2-3 tbsp Icing Sugar
  • 1 cup Milk/uht milk/Evaporated milk 

Soaking milk mixture
Milk, condensed milk, coffee powder

Cream layer

Dalgona coffee 
Blend 2 tbsp coffee powder, 2 tbsp sugar and 2 tbsp warm water for a minute using a hand blender until fluffy. 


  1. Place lady finger biscuits in a tray aligned and pour the milk mixture (set some aside for second layer), spread the cream layer, now align another layer of biscuits and pour the milk mixture and now spread the dalgona folded with thick cream mixture and spread it well. 
  2. Now make lines by piping melted dark chocolate, using a toothpick go up and down on the lines to form a beautiful design. Or use anything to style the pudding.

  • I made this pudding in a small tray as it was an experiment , you may increase the quantity of the soaking milk and whipped cream like wise. 
  • I have used lady finger biscuits here, you may use any unflavored biscuits that are available to you. 
  • Biscuits like Marie might need more layering, also pour in lukewarm milk mixture for the biscuits to soak. 
  • Bread (sides trimmed) can also be used and prepared in cold milk mixture. 
  • If you do not have Whipping cream, you may use drem whip sachets too. 
  • You may also substitute for cream cheese instead of thick cream 
  • Remember to fold your dalgona coffee and cream and not whisk. Whisking allows more bubbles and makes the mixture liquid. 
  • You may pipe the Dalgona cream mixture for the final presentation too
  • The recipe makes 8 large slices, you may adjust the measurements accordingly, if you plan to make for more peopleπŸ˜€
  • If Icing Sugar/castor sugar isn't available you may improvise by grinding normal granulated sugar.
