• 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 1 cup lukewarm milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Filling:
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar
    • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • Additional ingredients:
    • Vegetable oil for cooking


1. Prepare the Dough: a. In a mixing bowl, combine the lukewarm milk and sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves. b. Sprinkle the active dry yeast over the milk mixture and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes until it becomes frothy. c. Add the melted butter and salt to the yeast mixture and mix well. d. Gradually add the flour, stirring continuously to form a sticky dough. e. Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5-7 minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic. f. Place the dough back in the bowl, cover it with a damp cloth, and let it rise in a warm place for 1-2 hours, or until it doubles in size.

2. Make the Filling: a. In a separate bowl, mix together the brown sugar, chopped peanuts, and ground cinnamon for the filling. b. Drizzle the honey over the mixture and stir until well combined. Set aside.

3. Assemble Hoddeok: a. Once the dough has risen, punch it down and divide it into equal-sized balls, about golf ball-sized. b. On a floured surface, roll out each ball into a flat, thin disc, about 4-5 inches in diameter. c. Spoon a generous amount of the filling onto the center of one disc. d. Carefully fold the edges of the dough over the filling, pinching the seams to seal the pancake.

4. Cook Hoddeok: a. Heat a skillet or pan over medium heat and add a small amount of vegetable oil. b. Place the filled Hoddeok onto the skillet and gently press it down with a spatula to flatten it slightly. c. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crispy.

5. Serve: a. Remove the Hoddeok from the skillet and let it cool for a minute. b. Serve the Hoddeok warm and enjoy the gooey, sweet filling.


  • Adjust the sweetness of the filling according to your preference by adding more or less brown sugar and honey.
  • Experiment with different nuts or add a touch of vanilla extract to the filling for extra flavor.

Now you’re ready to savor the delightful taste of homemade Hoddeok!
