Hotteok or known as popular Korean pancakes are an important part of the street food. Today I chose to tell you about them, and I can’t hide that sweets temptations are my weakness. This is one of the reasons why I decided again to immerse us in the world of desserts, but not the only one.
It is believed that Hotteok comes from Chinese merchants, who have immigrated to Korea in the end of the 19th century, and the Koreans have given them a satisfying sweet taste, different from that of Chinese pancakes.
Since the beginning of the 21st century, Hotteok has begun to change continuously and today these pancakes have many different variations. You can encounter variants with: green tea, pink bokbunja, corn, pizza and many others. Despite their diversity, many people prefer them with their traditional stuffing made of cinnamon and peanuts. Walnuts may also be used as a substitute for peanuts.
The most varied options allow a person to unleash their imagination and to experiment without being limited to the stuffing of the pancakes.
The video, that I will share with you presents two options for making Hotteok, a traditional (sweet) and modern with cheese mozzarella.
