Fresh from the Box

They sell these sweet fried pancakes in Korea for ~$1. They have some rice flour sometimes so they are chewy. Wait that might actually a different food all together. Okay what I’m talking about is “hoddeuk.” It’s filled with nuts and sugar and drips fat and syrup all over you. Yum! Since they obviously don’t sell it fresh here I made it from a mix. I never make anything from mixes so I was pleasantly surprised that it didn’t turn out disgusting. Like Betty Crocker cakes.


I brought this back from Korea because it also included an acorn squash flavor. I used a rice cup measuring thing because it called for cc’s. Who has measuring cups for that?


You end up with this yeasty dough. Everything is included.


This is the filling. It’s basically sugar and nuts and spices. Like, 1/20 part nuts and spices and the rest sugar.


Pile it on on. Actually I don’t understand how much you are supposed to put in I only used half. I think a lot of Koreans are diabetic…


Form little balls and fry them. I made some in a dry pan and no no they were so bad.


You should smash them a bit to get them flatter. I am so Alton Brown I used a wine bottle.


Yum.

Yum.

This is one of those foods that seems universally likeable. Oil and sugar, the perfect combination. I’m sure this is super easy to make from scratch but actually, I am lazy. The end!
