Vietnamese Egg Coffee (Cà Phê Trứng)

Vietnamese Egg Coffee (Cà Phê Trứng)

Vietnamese egg coffee is one of those unique local foods, which never fade in the memories of travellers in Vietnam. Upon their arrival home, many people try to replicate it home, but it is not easy to achieve the same taste and consistency, whereas a secret lies in the right proportions and an ability to create a delicious frothy mixture of egg and sweetened condensed milk. 

Despite the fact that egg coffee is widely known as a Vietnamese hot beverage, it is perfect for cold winter mornings in Europe! For example,  you can find a similar recipe also in Norwegian and Swedish cuisine, and it is often referred to as Scandinavian or Norwegian egg coffee. The perfect mix of condensed milk and egg yolk gives a new life to a popular hot drink.

  • black coffee – small cup
  • condensed milk – 2 tsp

  • egg yolk – 1 

Step 1. Make a small cup of coffee the way you like it. There is a certain way of coffee preparation you would need to follow to make a proper Vietnamese style coffee, but as it is not always easily available, your regular cup of black coffee will do!

Step 2. Whisk the yolk with the condensed milk and 1 tsp of  (brewed) coffee until the mix is completely foamy.

Step 3. Pour the mix on the top of your coffee. It will create a beautiful two-layered beverage in your cup, but keep in mind that it will take just a few moments for the tope layer to start mixing with the coffee. 

Your coffee is ready! If you prefer it rather on a sweet side, add more condensed milk or any sweetener of your choice.

    Most of what you point out is supprisingly appropriate and that makes me ponder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light previously. Your piece truly did turn the light on for me as far as this topic goes. Nonetheless at this time there is one particular issue I am not really too cozy with and while I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual central idea of the point, allow me see what all the rest of your visitors have to point out.Nicely done.
