From hilarious pet videos to unique food recipes and hacks, TikTok is the no. 1 social media platform where users upload and share interesting videos with one another. Here, we bring you 5 food recipes that went viral on TikTok this year.
1. Dalgona Coffee
Named after a Korean-style candy with foamy topping, this whipped coffee trend took the world by storm. As people stay home during lockdown, they began to explore food recipes that are instagrammable and are easy to make at home.
This coffee concoction is one of them and all you need is instant coffee, sugar, and hot water. However, you have to spend about 30 minutes whipping the ingredients in order to achieve a light and frothy coffee mixture. Then, you pour the mixture into a glass of milk and voila, you are done! Other versions such as matcha, milk tea, and milo dalgona have also emerged on TikTok.
2. Pancake Cereal
Another aesthetically pleasing food trend is the Pancake Cereal. Essentially, it is cooking a lot of mini pancakes and putting all of them into a bowl so they look like cereal. The small surface area of the pancake makes it extra crispy, unlike normal pancakes. If you are a fan of crispy pancakes, this breakfast recipe is for you! All you need to do is squeeze pancake batter into small circles, cook them on a pan, and pour them into a bowl once it is done. Feel free to add any topping that you like afterwards (eg. milk, syrup, butter) to complete the meal.
3. Cloud Bread
You have probably seen this fluffy bread trending on TikTok. The soft texture and bright pastel colours makes it impossible to miss when scrolling through the app. Cloud Bread, a soft baked meringue, can be made with three ingredients as well – egg whites, sugar, and cornstarch. If you want, you can add food colouring to make it look appealing.
4. Creme Brulee
It seems like foods that only need three ingredients become viral on TikTok. With just vanilla ice cream, eggs and sugar, you can now make your own Creme Brulee at home. TikTok user @shefshaq shared this hack on the platform and needless to say, it gained immense popularity with the masses. Everyone started making their own version of Creme Brulee at home and shared their success on TikTok with the hashtag #cremebrulee.
5. Strawberry Milk
Lastly, strawberry milk is also one of the popular food trends seen on TikTok this year. Many people have been making their own strawberry milk or milkshakes as they stay home during lockdown. With only three ingredients – strawberries, milk, and sugar, you can make your very own strawberry milk and enjoy it at the comfort of your own home.
These 5 food recipes are relatively easy to make yourself at home – no wonder that they were trending on TikTok.
