Sweet pancakes with brown sugar syrup filling

Hotteok 호떡

Hotteok is a flour dough pancake filled with sugar syrup inside. It’s one of the most popular street snacks in Korea.

Ok, now it’s time for me to release my hotteok recipe!

Advertisement

I used to make hotteok for my children. How often? So many times! When they came home from school, I would surprise them with my hotteok. I never made it before they came. I prepared some well-fermented dough and the brown sugar mixture. That’s all! Once they entered the home, I said, “Wash your hands and come back to the kitchen! Hotteok will be ready~” with big smile.  My children were so happy and excited!

A glass of milk and hot hot hotteok with sizzling golden syrup! Wouldn’t you like it? Yes, children love it! If you want to entertain your children, wait for them with the preparation just as I did.

I make hotteok for myself and my friends these days. Where are my little children!!

I sometimes miss the old times. They are already grownups and live far away from me.

Serve or eat hotteok right after you make it. If someone gives me cold hotteok, I will feel insulted. : )  I will refuse to eat it and save my empty stomach for kimchi and rice! lol

Ingredients

Flour, water, dry yeast, salt, vegetable oil, sugar, brown sugar, walnuts, and cinnamon powder.

Directions

Make hotteok dough:

  1. Place 1 cup of lukewarm water into a mixing bowl.
  2. Add 2 tbs white sugar, 2 ts yeast, ½ ts salt, 1 tbs vegetable oil, and stir it well.
  3. Add 2 cups of all purpose flour and mix it with a rice scoop, or by hand.
  4. Let the dough rise. It should sit with the lid closed at room temperature for 1 hour.
  5. After an hour the dough will rise to double its size. Knead it to remove the gas bubbles in the dough.
  6. Let it rise for another 10-20 minutes.

Make filling (for 8 hotteok):

  1. Mix ½ cup brown sugar, 1 ts cinnamon powder, and 2 tbs chopped walnuts in a bowl.
    *tip: you could use mozzarella cheese for stuffing. Invent your own fillings with your favorite ingredients!

Let’s make hotteok!

  1. Knead the dough again to remove the gas bubbles.
  2. Place and spread about ½ cup flour on your cutting board.
  3. Put the dough on your cutting board and knead it. Make it into a lump, and cut it into 8 equal-sized balls.


  4. Take 1 dough ball, flatten it, put some filling in the center of the dough, and then seal it to make a ball.
  5. Repeat this 8 times to make 8 stuffed balls.
    *tip: Use some flour from the cutting board to prevent your fingers from sticking to the dough
  6. Heat up your non-stick pan over medium heat and add some vegetable oil.
  7. Place 1 ball on the pan and let it cook for 30 seconds.
  8. When the bottom of the dough ball is light golden brown, turn it over and press the dough with a spatula to make a thin and wide circle (about the size of a CD).
  9. Let it cook about 1 minute until the bottom is golden brown.
  10. Turn it over again and turn down the heat very low.
  11. Place the lid on the pan and cook 1 more minute. The brown sugar filling mixture will be melted to syrup!hotteok (호떡)

 

Serve hot!

    Hi maangchi, I tried your recipe with a Vietnamese twist. I used shreded coconut and chopped roasted peanuts as a filling. Tasted great. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

    Dear Maangchi, we love HODDEOK, my daughter likes them a lot. I am writing to tell you the things I had to do to achieve the hoddeok’s. Here you cannot find brown sugar (its really sucks), after much thought, I realized I could solve the problem if I used white sugar mixed with molasses. In the end, after trying several times, I found that if you mix 1 cup white sugar 1 teaspoon molasses, you can get a very good and moist light brown sugar. After that, is so easy to make them!
    I’m thinking next time to try the recipe for kimchi, if I can find the Nappa Cabbage, (if so, I will told you) Thanks again for your site, your recipes and videos, its rocks!

      It sounds like more delicious than brown sugar filling! : ) You are very creative!

    Hi Maangchi,
    Your site stops me from being too homesick for the time I spent in Cheongju-si.
    I first tried hoddeok there, a husband and wife team made and sold them on the street near my apartment, and although I’ve tried making them myself, they’ve never been quite right. Can’t wait to try your recipe.

    Just to say, the hoddeok I used to buy had a filling of brown sugar and sesame seeds. Since I don’t like cinnamon, this was perfect for me, and I’d recommend trying it, it is deeeeee-licious! I am curious about the cheese-filled ones though…

    Thanks Maangchi for the great recipe! I just made it tonight and everyone loved it. We usually get the boxed hoddeok when we make it at home, but I’d rather make it fresh and you make everything so easy.

    One thing though, the texture of the dough didn’t have as much bite as it should. My mom suggested (while she was eating her third hoddeok) that I use a mixture of regular flour and sweet rice flour to give it that extra texture. I plan on doing that next time but also wanted to see what you thought of that. I was thinking of doing a 50/50 ration, any suggestions?

    (In Korean the phonetic for the texture I’m talking about is ko-suh-woh. Unfortunately I don’t have Hangul on my computer)

      I don’t know the answer because I have never used either the hoddeok mix or sweet rice in the dough. But if you like more chewy texture, sweet rice could be used. why not! If you want to discuss more about this, leave your question here on the forum. https://www.maangchi.com/talk/forum/general-discussion

    hi Maangchi!~

    i liked your video so much that i had to make my own hoddeoks. as i don’t eat sugar, i didn’t put any in the dough, and i used brown flour. and of course i made it with cheese…
    i tried the ‘real’ one when i was in korea – so i know how the original tastes. *^.^*
    anyways… this version turned out to be delicious too.
    thanks for the recipe, the video, your smile and good mood! you rock!

      sorry to hear that! There could be so many reasons why your dough doesn’t rise. Maybe the water was too hot? Or the yeast was not good quality? Or your room temperature is low?

        and by the way, I did end up making this with the “dead” dough. The filling was amazing! I find the brown sugar to cinnamon ratio was just perfect :) thank you!

          I’ve made doughs before and any of Maangchi’s reasons are good ones on why a dough won’t rise. The number one reason I found was the temperature of the water you use. The ideal temperature should be around 105-110 F. The water should be more luke warm then warm. A good way to test that you have the right temperature water (and good yeast) is to combine the yeast with water and the sugar and let it sit for about 10 mins. You should start to see bubbles forming at the top of the water. If you don’t something is wrong.

    Hi Maangchi,
    just wanted to say a ‘big’ thank you for this video recipe. I’ve never imagined myself making this super tasty hoddeok at home. Many years ago when I had first tried, it turned out to be a complete disaster and gave up to make my own. Yet, this time with your recipe it was simply a great success! What surprised me is that my husband during his trip in Korea didn’t enjoy hoddeok from a street stall because of those sticky & sweet syrup, but somehow loved yours : ) I’ve already made it twice. For my second attempt I divided the dough into 16 pieces instead of 8 which, I think, is still nice & reasonable sizes.

    I’ve tried some of your other recipes and it never disappointed me. Thank you SO much for sharing authentic Korean cooking recipes.

    Hi, Maangchi-

    I tried your hoddeok recipe today and made it for my friends as an Easter treat. I remember the first time I had them when I was in Insa-dong in Seoul. The filling was so hot, I burned my tongue, but it was wonderful! These turned out well. I will make them again. Thanks for the recipe.

    Here is a picture of my hoddeok. Well, I hope it works. I posted it on my facebook page.

    I made hoddeok last week while visiting my mom. They turned out great :). I think my dough was a bit softer than yours because the balls lost their shape a bit while I was making them. Should I have let them rise a bit longer or might my dough have been a bit too wet?

    Aha! The first Maangchi recipe I ever attempted. When the video came up in my subscription, I watched it and thought to myself, ‘you know, this looks so good and it’s rather simple, I should make it!’ So I did, and I probably used too much filling but I just couldn’t stop eating them! Everyone loved them! I’ve been craving them since so I’m making them again tonight.
    Thanks for all the lovely recipes, I’ll be attempting more in the future ;)

    i made this recipe on the weekend but i think i did something wrong, when i was making the dough is was very hard to mix and it didnt look like the same texture as in the video, and when i sealed it and let it stand for 1 hour,i had put it for almost 2 hrs, but i continued making it and it was still good but i think it could have been better if i didnt mess up. so im wondering what step did i mess up

      oh, it sounds like you made good hoddeok!
      As I mentioned in the video, if your dough doesn’t rise to double its size in an hour, wait longer.
      There could be many reasons why your dough doesn’t rise as fast as mine. Your yeast may be old? Or your room temperature is colder than mine? I used this yeast:

    This hoddeok is better than the packaged Korean Hoddeok! My whole family said it was better than the packaged one, we made the packaged one 1 week before your hoddeok was made, and The whole family had seconds! :) Surprising how fast they disappeared!

    I just made hoddeok for lunch. Four hoddeok had leftover roasted garlic salmon with greens chopped up for filling, and the other four had the traditional cinnamon walnut syrup! My parents loved it!! This is a very simple recipe that tasted really good. Once I find a Korean market, I’m going to try the rest of your recipes (especially your jyajangmyun)!

    I’m going to attempt to make this tonight ^.^
    I just want to ask, can you only use the dough the day you made it? Or can you save it for a day or so? (Sorry for the amateur question)
    Thank you once again!
    Love your food!

      no, you can keep the dough in the fridge up to 3-4 days. Put the leftover dough in a plastic bag. Make sure the bag is bigger than the dough because the dough is going to expand. Good luck with making delicious hoddeok!

    Hello Maangchi,

    I made this recipe today “Hoddoek” and guess what my kids really love it and requested me to double the recipe next time. Easy to make but the outcome is fantastic! Enjoy eating it! Thank you

    Mozarella filling! Never heard of it, but sounds like a good idea!

    oh, btw, I remember sometimes people put chapchae noodle with vegetables as filling. I haven’ had it for years…. ah the memory…

        Maangchi unni, we made your “uh oh hoddeok” the other day with hazelnuts and they came out scrumptious! There were lots of “mmmms” and “uhhh so yummy” when we ate them but I think my husband hit the nail on the head with his response after trying one: “Maangchi’s done it again!” he said, and yes you have! ^^ Thanks again for yet another great recipe! We will be making these again and again and again. haha

    I feel like this is a milestone on the Maangchi site! Maangchi and Reinier in the same video! The second I saw the sticky dough and Reinier’s rings I wanted to poke him through the screen and tell him to take them off so they don’t get dough stuck to them, but it looks like they made it alright. When I try this recipe I’ll probably get dough everywhere, lol.

    Thinking up fillings for the hoddeuk will be so fun, I bet they’d be good filled with colby-jack cheese and salsa.

      Invent your own fillings and let us know. You must be a creative person! Yes, walnut and cinnamon powder in brown sugar is more traditional filling.

    I love these! When I go to LA, I always go to the Korean grocery store to get it. But the lady moved… :( The one in HMart in Chicago does not taste as good! So now I can make it myself!

    BTW I’m jealous of Reinier! He gets to cook with you! :)

    oh my goddddd, i was waiting for you to post this recipe! i was so disappointed when i found out my mom (AND MY GRANDMA) both use the boxed mix and don’t like to make it from scratch. i can understand it’s easier, but the long way tastes better. ^^

    thanks again, maangchi!
