For this month’s Bread Bakers, our host Mayuri wanted us to make try pancakes from around the world. My search led me to these delicious Stuffed Korean pancakes called Hotteok. Recipe is from ‘Cook Korean cookbook.Stuffed Korean Pancakes Apparently these Brown sugar stuffed pancakes are very popular street food in Korea. They are served piping hot straight out of the pan, the brown sugar melts and oozes out of the pocket when you take the first bite.Stuffed Korean PancakesThe dough is made with half all purpose flour (in my case, I used some wholewheat pastry flour) and half sweet rice flour. The dough is made with yeast and needs time to rise, so make sure to wake up a little early if you want to make these for breakfast.Stuffed Korean PancakesStuffed Korean PancakesThe stuffing has brown sugar mixed in with finely chopped nuts (like peanuts, walnuts, pecans etc) and ground cinnamon. I made half of my hotteok with brown sugar & nuts and the other half with Nutella, for the kids. They really enjoyed with these fluffy and delicious pancakes.Stuffed Korean Pancakes
