Originating in South Korea, Dalgona coffee, known as “whipped coffee,” gained attraction right at the beginning of the pandemic. This whipped beverage gets its name from the similar look and taste of a Korean sugary sweet, “dalgona,” but doesn’t actually have any dalgona in its recipe.
With the aesthetically pleasing look and refreshing taste, it’s no wonder that this easy recipe gained so much popularity amongst coffee lovers trying to get their caffeine fix.

As the beloved amusement Disneyland is currently shut down, fans have taken it upon themselves to bring a piece of the park home and recreated one of their favorite snacks online.

Disney inspired or not, this is a solid recipe to follow for a treat most people think is difficult to make.

1 cup of water
8 tablespoon of Butter
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon (for main mixture)
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon (for sugar mixture)
1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
3 eggs
1 ½ cups of vegetable or canola oil
½ cup of sugar

On a 1 ½-quart saucepan over medium heat, place in your water, butter, salt and ¼ cinnamon. Once it’s to a boil, reduce heat to low.

Add in your flour and stir together until, forming a ball with the dough. Remove the saucepan from heat and allow it to rest for 5-7 minutes.

Add in the eggs, one at a time, making sure each gets fully incorporated.

In another 1-quart saucepan, add in your oil and heat until temperature reaches 350°. Heat up the oil until a fast bubble emerges when the dough is submerged.

With a spoon, scoop out dough and place into a piping bag (large star tip recommended). Carefully pipe a small, 1-inch strip of dough over the pan, cut with a knife or scissors, and let it sit until each side appears tan brown.

Remove churros with spoon, tongs or mesh strainer and let them cool on a paper towel. Put together sugar and cinnamon in a plate, and lightly coat each churro.

Making the dough is the simplest portion of this recipe, what takes up the most effort is the frying. You will be working with hot oil so remain cautious around the stove and keep in mind that piping bags (especially DIY ones) can become frustrating to work with, but be patient – practice makes perfect. The bright side of all your work will be your mini, sugary, crunchy churros.

Disney inspired or not, this is a solid recipe to follow for a treat most people think is difficult to make.
