Sweet stuffed pancakes – Hoddeok

Hoddeok - stuffed pancakes

These are a pancake lovers dream come true – pancakes stuffed with brown sugar, cinnamon and nuts.  Hot, gooey and so so yummy!

I have been craving these for a while.  Ever since I had them in the summer time, I have been dreaming about making them.  I know, I know, some people dream of climbing Mt. Everest.  Not me, I dream of pancakes!   They are little more time consuming than normal pancakes, so once the fall-back-to-school-thanksgiving-christmas-new-years dust had settled,  I finally tackled them!

I must confess that I devoured more than my fair share of these.  And the next night, I made them again!  I think they would also be delicious for breakfast with a hot cup of coffee. But that would mean waking up early… mehh!

The time you need: 1.5 hours       Yield: 8 pancakes

The things you need:

  • 1 cup lukewarm water (I usually do it on the warmer side)
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 tsp yeast
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 cups flour (I used whole wheat flour… I felt less guilty eating so many! :))
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp chopped nuts (I used almonds)

The how to:

  • In a bowl, put 1 cup of warm water, white sugar, yeast, salt and oil
  • Mix the ingredients well
  • Add the flour and mix it all together

  • Cover with plastic wrap and let the dough rise (I heat my oven for a few minutes and then turn the light on… and turn the oven off, and let it rise in there)
  • While to dough is rising, make the filling: mix the brown sugar, cinnamon and nuts together in a small bowl
  • After about an hour it should have doubled in size.
  • Knead the dough a little to release the bubbles
  • Cover again and let it continue to rise 10-20 minutes
  • Flour a clean surface (important step!) and knead the dough.

  • Lightly oil a pan on medium heat and place a ball on the pan
  • Let it fry for 30 seconds or so and flip it over and flatten it out… like a pancake
