Homemade Miniature Whipped Coffee Cake Recipe

Who remembers the whipped coffee craze from TikTok?! It seemed like everyone was making whipped coffee right at the start of quarantine last March. Now, a year later, whipped coffee is still a great way to add some flavor or texture to any dish.

Here are the ingredients that you need for the coffee cakes:

  • 3/4 cup oats, blended into fine oat flour 80g
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup drizzly almond butter 70g
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup 80g
  • 1 large egg room temperature, if possible
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp espresso or strongly brewed coffee

For the whipped coffee topping:

  • 2 tbsp instant coffee
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp hot water around 180F
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar optional, for dusting


Here are the instructions that you need to follow to complete this recipe:

  1. First, you need to preheat your oven to 350F.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together all of the oat flour, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a separate medium-sized bowl, whisk together all of the almond butter, maple syrup, egg, espresso and vanilla. Make sure everything is well combined together.
  4. Add the dry ingredients in with the wet ingredients and whisk until a batter forms.
  5. Pour the mixture into 3 baking ramekins. A muffin tin will also work here too! Bake for 18-20 minutes at 350F. Remove when the tops are domed and you can insert a toothpick and it comes out clean.
  6. While your cakes are baking, make the whipped coffee by whisking together the instant coffee, sugar and hot water. Whisk vigorously for several minutes (you can also use an electric mixer for this) or until you see the mixture lighten in color and stiff peaks form.
  7. Let the cakes cool slightly when they are out of the oven, then top with the whipped coffee. And you can dust with powdered sugar if you’d like!
