Ingredients

Directions

Hoddeok, or Hotteok (호떡) is a sweet pancake snack with a wanderful sugar based, cinnamon flavoured, syrup inside. It is one of the most popular street snacks in Korea and is an ideal snack to warm up even the coldest winters’ day! A fresh batch of these never lasts long in my house and they are definately best eaten straight from the pan.

This recipe uses the more traditional filling of brown sugar, cinnamon and walnuts but, as with alot of Korean food, there are many other variations available. Sometimes though original is best and as far as Hoddeok is concerned I don’t think you can beat this filling.

This recipe is made even more perfect by the fact that all ingredients required are easily available from UK supermarkets.

Steps

1
Done

Add the lukewarm water to a large mixing bowl and then stir in the sugar (white sugar only), yeast, vegetable oil and salt.

2
Done

Add the plain flour to the bowl and mix well until you have a sticky dough.

3
Done
1 hour

Cover the bowl with cling film and leave at room temperature for 1 hour to allow the dough to rise.

4
Done

While you're waiting for the dough to rise you can now prepare the hoddeok filling. Chop the walnuts into small pieces and place in a small bowl. Add the light brown sugar and cinnamon to the bowl and mix well.

5
Done

After an hour the dough should have risen well. Remove the cling film from the bowl and give the dough a good stir to remove some of the gas bubbles. Replace the cling film and leave for a further 10 minutes.

6
Done

Spread some flour on to a chopping board. Stir the dough one final time in the bowl and then remove onto the chopping board. Cut the dough into 8 equal pieces.

7
Done

The dough is quite sticky and difficult to handle so to make this step a bit easier you can cover your hands thinly in flour. Pick up one of the dough balls and flatten it out in your hand. Create a well in the center of the dough with your other hand and spoon in 1/8th of the filling. Finally, seal the filling into the dough by making a ball shape.

Repeat this step for all 8.

8
Done

Put a frying pan over low/medium heat and add enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Once hot, pop a dough ball in the middle of the pan and leave for 1 minute.

9
Done

Using a spatula flip the dough ball over and flatten down. Leave for a further 2 minutes.

10
Done

Flip the dough over once again, drop the heat down to low, cover with a lid and leave in the pan for a further 2 minutes.

11
Done

Eat immediately and enjoy :-)
