Coffee Butterscotch Burfi

Share with friends and family

My love for coffee just does not seem to end .  The slightly bitter flavor of coffee with the subtle taste of sugar to keep me energised and going through the day.

This is yet another experiment in my kitchen with instant coffee and butterscotch essence.

My other experiments with coffee are :

Coffee flavored Thenga burfi

Coffee Biscuit Pudding

A very simple and delicious melt in mouth maida burfi with the added flavor of coffee and butterscotch makes you feel as if you are taking a bite of world's finest chocolates.

Preparation Time : 5 mins
Cooking Time : 20-25 mins
Complexity : Medium High


 maida / All purpose flour : 1 cup / 100gms
 sugar : 1 or 3/4 cup / 75 -100gms
 ghee : 2 tablespoon
 butterscotch essence : 1 tsp
 instant coffee powder : 3 tsp mixed in warm water


In a wide pan,heat about 1.5 tablespoon of ghee and roast the maida until you get a nice aroma. take care not to burn / change color of the maida. Roast on medium flame.

In another burner,add the sugar with 1/2 cup water and allow to boil and prepare syrup of 1 string consistency. 

Turn off the stove ,add the coffee decoction and mix well.

Now immediately,add the roasted maida to the sugar syrup and mix it quickly such that there are no lumps and the sugar and maida get mixed well. Add the butterscotch essence and mix the entire mixture well by stirring continuosly until it forms a nice mass and leaves the side of the kadai on its own. The heat in the sugar syrup is enough to form the mass. No need to keep the stove on for this stage.

Pour the mixture on to a greased plate / mould and tap it well to release the air bubbles and evenly level it . Allow it to cool for sometime and then mark the shapes and cut it into cubes or diamonds as per your desire.


  1. Hi,planning to try this,but dint get the butterscotch essence,will it taste good if I use vanilla or rose???

    1. Coconpowder and vanilla go well . You can try plain coffee flavor or plain vanilla or plain rose .
      I am not sure but I think coffee and vanilla also go well . Donot worry your burfi wil turn out well :-)
      Happy Diwali
