Korean Recipe: Hoddeok

By
Korean-Hoddeok/aeriskitchen.com

Hoddeok is a “traditional” Korean street vendor food. Korean people love to eat this delicious snack especially in the cold winter. It tastes best when it is warm. You can find the ingredients for this recipe easily anywhere, so I highly recommend this one. Do you like sticky buns or pecan rolls? If so, I bet you will love this.

Main Ingredients

½ Cup Warm Water
½ Tbsp Yeast
½ Tbsp Sugar
3 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 Cup Milk
½ Tbsp Salt

Filling Ingredients

¼ Cup Brown Sugar
¼ Cup Sugar
15 Chopped Peanuts (1½ Tbsp)
½ tsp Cinnamon

Instructions:

1. In ½ cup of warm water, add ½ Tbsp of yeast and ½ Tbsp of sugar. Set it in warm place for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, sift 3 cups of all-purpose flour in a large bowl.

2. Add the yeast mixture, 1 cup of milk, and ½ Tbsp of salt into the bowl. Knead the dough. Because the dough is sticky, add flour to your hands.

3. Form the dough into a ball and cover it with plastic wrap.

4. Set the dough in the oven with just the light on for 3 hours. The heat from the light bulb is enough to make it rise.

5. After 3 hours, it will double in size.

6. To make the filling, combine ¼ cup of brown sugar, ¼ cup of sugar, 1½ Tbsp of chopped peanuts, and ½ tsp of cinnamon. Mix everything together.

7. Place the peanuts inside of a zipper bag; crush them with something like the back of a knife.

8. Oil your hands before working with the dough. Take a piece of dough a little larger than a golf ball, then roll and flatten it. Add a spoonful of the filling to the center.

9. Wrap the dough around the filling. Smooth it.

10. Pour some oil into a pre-heated pan on med-high. Place the dough balls into the pan.

11. About 10 seconds later, flip them over and flatten them with a spatula. Fry until both sides of the hoddeok become golden brown.
