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. 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.The 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.The 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.

Hotteok (Stuffed Korean Pancakes)
For the Dough:
- 1 cup All purpose flour*
- 1 cup Sweet Rice flour
- 2¼ teaspoons Instant Yeast
- 1 tablespoon Sugar
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 1 cup Milk (I used almond milk)
- 1 teaspoon Oil
For the filling:
- ½ cup Brown sugar
- ½ cup Nuts (peanuts, pecans or walnuts), finely chopped
- ½ teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon Salt
Make the Dough:
- In a mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, sweet rice flour, sugar, salt and yeast. Mix well.
- Add lukewarm milk and oil; mix well. This is a very sticky dough. Cover and set aside for 1 hour.
- Gently deflate the dough and stir well 3~4 times. Cover and set aside for another 30~40 minutes.
Make the Filling:
- Combine all the ingredients for the filling in a small bowl.
Make the Pancakes:
- Generously flour the work surface and divide the dough into 8 pieces. Take a piece of the dough in the palm, roll it into a ball and flatten it lightly.
- Put about 1~2tbsp filling in the middle of the dough. Press lightly with a spoon and pull the dough over the filling. Form into a ball and flatten it lightly.
- Heat 3~4tbsp oil in a nonstick pan, place the pancakes on the pan and cook on medium flame for 2~3 minutes or until the bottom is golden brown and crispy. Gently flip and cook on the other side for 2~3 minutes.
- Serve right away!!
