Introduction of Korean sweet pancake hotteok


Hotteok is a rice cake made by kneading flour or glutinous rice flour and then baked in a round shape with sugar stuffing, and it is one of Korea’s representative street snacks.

In recent years, not only hotteok with sugar, but also green tea hotteok kneaded with green tea powder, corn hotteok kneaded with corn powder, and vegetable hotteok with vegetables instead of sugar.
Originally, hotteok is a snack that is usually eaten in winter, but these days, it doesn’t matter which season.
In Korea, you can often see stalls selling hotteok.

#Origin of Hotteok

Hotteok is a combination name of ‘Ho(胡)’ and ‘tteok’ in Korean. “Ho” means people living in the western regions (Central Asia, Arabs). ‘Tteok’ is a cake made from rice. Hotteok is said to have entered Korea through Central Asia and China via the Silk Road.

Chinese merchants who lived in Korea in the past sold food such as dumplings and hotteok for a living. And gradually changing the recipe to suit the taste of Korean people, they started adding  honey and brown sugar in hotteok.
This Korean-style hotteok first began to be sold in Incheon, and has since spread to downtown areas such as the Chinese embassy in Myeong-dong in Seoul and Jongro Street, where many Chinese are concentrated.

#hotteok vendors can be found on the streets
