Homemade Cappuccino

Homemade Cappuccino

A year ago I would have never thought of posting a cappuccino recipe. It was only natural to be able to go to a cafe and have a cappuccino with family or friends. Since we couldn't go out like before anymore, I started missing a good cappuccino, so I learned to make a delicious one at home. It's wonderful and it can be adapted to any taste - espresso or instant coffee, decaf, inka (my girls call it inkaccino). In the morning, you can make a regular cappuccino, with simple or vegetable milk and in the evening, a decaf.

Of course, with a proper coffee machine you can make a great milk foam but here I wanted you to see how to prepare cappuccino easily, without any special tools. Then you can sweeten it with whatever you like, I chose here brown sugar cubes.


50 ml
whichever you prefer
100 ml
3.5% fat, can be replaced with vegetable milk, but with a less impressive foam
Brown sugar
2 pieces
2 cubes, optional
Cinnamon powder
0.25 tsp

Step by step


For cappuccino, it is recommended a small cup, about 200ml capacity.

So pick the right cup.


After that, prepare 50ml coffee with your favourite method - espresso, in a coffee pot, instant etc. I like it a bit stronger, so that I can properly feel its taste together with the milk.


Cappuccino sweetened with brown sugar is very tasty. I like to use the cubes, they are easier to handle.

Sweeten your coffee as you wish.


Now, because not everybody has got special equipment to foam the milk, I will show you how it's done in a simple way, only with a 700ml jar with lid.


First, heat the milk. It shouldn't be boiling, just hot enough, about 60 degrees C. I usually microwave it for 1 minute. 

Pour into the jar and tightly screw the lid on.


Start to shake the jar carefully, making sure milk doesn't come out and splash. 

Keep shaking the jar for about 1 minute.


Now pour the coffee into the cup you are going to prepare the cappuccino.


Start pouring in the milk from the jar, at first, it will be just milk, without the foam.


Then comes the foam, make it look nice on top.


Optionally, dust with cinnamon or cocoa powder over the top.

Serve and savour right away.
