Be transported to the streets of Seoul with this recipe for a popular street food - a sweet pancake with a gooey sugar filling!
Let's start cooking!
Step 1 - Activate yeast
- In a small bowl or measuring jug, add warm water, 2 Tbsp sugar and 2 tsp dry yeast. Stir to mix, then set aside for 10 minutes for the yeast to activate.
Step 2 - Combine pancake batter and filling
In a mixing bowl, add 2 cups flour, ½ tsp salt, 1 Tbsp vegetable oil and yeast mixture. Combine, then cover and set aside batter to proof for 1 hour.Use bread flour for more of a chewy texture.
In another mixing bowl, add ¼ cup brown sugar, ½ tsp cinnamon powder and ground peanuts. Mix well and set aside.
Step 3 - Stuff pancakes
- In a pan on medium heat, add ¼ cup vegetable oil.
- Coat your hands with vegetable oil. Take about 80 g of dough (slightly smaller than a tennis ball) and flatten in the palm of your hand. Add 1 Tbsp filling, quickly pinch ends together, shape into a puck and drop into hot oil, with the pinched side on the surface of the pan.
Step 4 - Fry pancakes
- Fry for about 1 minute on each side, or until golden brown. Remove and leave to drain on paper towels.
Plate and serve!
